Seward High Art – Mythology Prints

Seward High Art – Mythology Prints

Seward High Art Students made reductive linocuts focusing on mythology.  Students chose any mythological creature/god they wished, from a variety of cultures across time.  Then they had a friend pose for them as that god or creature, took photos, printed the best one out, and drew on top of the photo to add details from the myth, ie the snakes […]

Seward High Art: Leatherwork

Seward High Art: Leatherwork

I was inspired to do some deep cleaning in my supply closet and stumbled upon stashes of leather and leatherworking tools from the late 1990s I’d guess.  This deduction is due to finding Seward’s own Kris Peck’s name stamped into one of the scraps.   I decided to put this fine resource to use although I had literally no experience with […]

Seward High Ceramics: Ceramic Plates and Bowls

Seward High Ceramics: Ceramic Plates and Bowls

One of the fun things about ceramics is the creativity involved.  You can drape clay over almost anything to take its form as it dries; wood, plaster, newspaper, glass… Draping a slab of clay into a concave surface is called a slump mold and onto a convex surface is a hump mold.  We did both methods, using paper plates as […]
