Nylon Sculpture

 4th grade students created Nylon Sculptures for the first time this fall.  They loved being able to create the wire armature, stretch the nylon over the wire, and then added primer and paint to their sculptures.  Students were allowed to use the primary colors, white, and black paint to finish their artwork; for a little extra punch students were given Silver Sharpie Markers to outline and add tiny details if they wished.  It was a super project that will definitely be repeated in future years.

Art Prize 2012

Art Prize 2012 Grand Prize Winner
Adonna Khare

   Art Prize in Grand Rapids, Michigan is INCREDIBLE!  To have such an amazing ART event that brings great discussion and consideration to "What is art?" makes me exicted as an art educator and proud as a West Michigan native.     

For the last three years I have seen this celebration of art continue to grow and each year I'm left more eager for the next. 

I believe one day I will enter my own artwork into the competition, but for now as I'm focused on growing as an educator and building my portfolio, it is enough to be able to just spend two weeks each year recongizing ART!
