3D Artwork from our K-5 Schools

I found a lot of inspiration from the 3D tables at our annual district art show.
We're fortunate that every school has a kiln so there is always a good sampling of ceramic projects. In this post, I'll concentrate on the non-ceramic 3D.

We had some Chihuly sculptures, paper mache and ...well, here are some pix:

This is a gorgeous quilt done for a classroom teacher by her students while in art class. My art colleague had the students each complete one square and sent it home w/the classroom teacher for sewing and quilting.

Aren't these fun? Simply done in felt with applique and blanket stitching around the edge...

One of the most colorful tables - love those Chihuly sculptures...

Fun masks made with aluminum tooling and permanent markers...

Fancy 'glasses' made with layers of paper mache...

Hope you enjoyed these...I work some fantastically creative & talented colleagues, don't you think?
