Class Description: Students will engage in a variety of artistic processes and mediums using nature as inspiration. We will design our own ‘Steampunk Critters’ following Jules Verne’s idea of non-electric power. Students will choose an insect, animal, fish and create a sculpture using, clay, wire, metal, paint and disassembled clocks. Other projects include ‘Fun Fossils’ creating embedded fossils forms from your imagination and ‘Leaf Banners’ designed using natural objects as the basis for the designs.
