This weekend is Sakura Matsuri at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens! Aka the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. In celebration of this traditional Japanese event and beginning of Spring, we created our own version of cherry blossom bonsai tree sculptures. Building an armature from wire was key in order to create a balanced structure to add layers of clay and cherry blossoms made of tissue paper to our miniature tree. The results were beautiful!
Le Finale! The Day has arrived with our Spooky but fun Giacometti Plaster wrap sculpture Haunted Scenes! Ghosts & Spiders & skeletons (sculpted of course!) …oh my! We arranged and constructed our Halloween scenes with our suspending spooky Giacometti inspired heads!
Taking from the greats such as Renaissance painter, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, contemporary artist Philip Haas created 3D fiberglass sculpture versions of his works, The Four Seasons. These will surely inspire all ages in Art Adventures for our current 3D food art project! Just in time for Thanksgiving, who is hungry for art?! Check out the fantastic sculptures by our Art Adventurers HERE
