We started out with this simple two day project to get started thinking in 360 degrees. Students were asked to sculpt a figure in human proportion -easier said than done AND in an action that breaks multiple planes. These sculptures are hanging in the art room right now and students can choose to integrate these into their assemblage sculptures if they want.
We've worked hard on these for the last two weeks. Students are finishing the day before T-Giving break so that they can dry and be ready to fire in the kiln. The reason we call them Taco Fish? Because we started with a flat circle template and cut out a tortilla sized circle. We then folded them into "tacos" and then transformed them into fish. As the fish dry and get fired and then get colored glaze we will continue to update photos.
