Fairy Tales, Folklore, Myths, and Pumpkins (oh, my)!
Students in Lauren Morris' s studio art class used an atypical canvas to create some masterpieces. The theme was Fairy Tales, Folklore, and Myths. Students chose a story to illustrate after conducting research about why stories are told. They then created sketches that showed value. Students used a carving technique called etching where they etched into the pumpkin using printmaking gouges and ceramic loop tools which are the same tools used by a Brooklyn based artist group called Manic Pumpkin Carvers! These temporary works of art look fantastic!
