Finally got these art pieces up on our site. Most of you know I have control
ONLY over making the pages but NO control of "getting it up on the internet"
(and sometimes that person doesn't get it up right either...but I digress).

ANYWAY...We have a new page to share of pantyhose sculpture Picasso Faces
which were done a couple of months ago. We did the basic pantyhose lesson
BUT we made the shapes more flat (two-sided) to give a more obvious front
and back to the "head". Features were made out of matboard. We looked at a
lot of Picasso's painted portraits to give us a jumping off point.

Kids found that even though the sculptures were slightly flexible, they
could still cut into them successfully with small nail scissors and punched
with large-eyed needles to make holes for yarn hair.

As they were working on their sculptures, I made a basic sculpture of my
own, painted it as a non-objective sculpture, cut out MOST of the insides,
made a loom out of it, and actually did a large weaving inside the sculpture
with yarn. Don't have a picture to share at the moment but I'll be showing
it at NAEA during our OODLES presentation. Possibilities are endless with
these sculptures. Toodles.....Bunki
