8th graders enjoyed working with clay to create their own creative mug. Students were inspired by the art of Wayne Thiebaud. He is best known for his dessert paintings. He also painted landscapes and people.
Students brainstormed ordinary things that they love as ideas for their mug design. Here are some of the finished mugs.
8th graders have been working with the style of art: surrealism. Students learned how surrealism often places images together that don't normally go together (juxtaposition). Surrealism also focuses on the unconscious mind and dreams. Enjoy these strange people collages!
Here is a video telling more about the style of surrealism!
