Last session of Rotation Two finished strong! During this class, the City Art Lab students were able to take the two-dimensional pieces and ideas that they had been working on in previous classes and moved into the realm of three-dimensionality. In the Roots/History group, the teens were able to use past pieces, such as their symbol drawings, mandalas, linocuts, self-portraits and water color experimentations, to create standing accordion books. The Transformation students took 3-dimensionality in a different direction and created paper mache masks. These questions served as inspiration for what their masks would look like:
- If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
- What is your spirit animal?
- What is the craziest dream you’ve ever had?
- If you were a character from a movie or cartoon, what would you be?
- Who would play you in a movie about your life?
- If you were a food, what kind of food would you be?
Throughout their projects, the students have grappled with how to apply questions and answers to art making, while figuring out how to use new art materials and processes along the way. Check out process images and work that the students made during the last day of Rotation One below!
