Ceramic Hands from SHS and SMS

Ceramic Hands from SHS and SMS

For our first project in SHS’s Ceramics Class and SMS Art Class we went back to basics – the human hand.  Hands have been connected to our personal identities and to our humaness since we lived in caves.  Seward High Students took inspiration from henna designs, hand tattoos, palm reading, folk art, and anataomy to name a few.  Great job!

SHS Art: Paper Mache

SHS Art: Paper Mache

Paper Mache is a beautiful problem solving exercise – for any form you build, you need some sort of mold to drape the soggy paper over.  We used balloons, balled up newspaper, egg cartons, cardboard, tin foil, paper towel rolls, etc for our forms.  Our Paper mache recipe was wood glue + water.  High School students were given freedom on […]

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 […]
