Body Casting: Plaster Arm
Body Casting: Plaster Arm
Plaster, Wood Scraps, Glue, Spraypaint, Test Tubes, Wax
March 2013

Art 3 students took casts of their chosen body part to use in a sculpture. Students were free to finish their pieces in any way they chose. They learned to manipulate plaster and create unique solutions to their problems to accomplish their visions. Most students used spraypaint to finish their pieces, however a few went in a different direction. I believe this assignment unlocked minds in my classroom for the most part, exposing students to a totally new type of problem solving and helping them to understand that when you put your mind to something, anything is possible.
