I Art As Well

My dad may not still be doing his sculpting and other arting, but I still am, as well as both of my sisters (April – 26, and Bailey – 12)

In my Literature for young adults class (instructed by the amazing Maureen Gibbon!) we recently read Laurie Halse Anderson’s empowering young adult novel Speak.

In honor of the assignment Melinda Sordino (the main character) is given by her art teacher, Maureen asked everyone in the class to create an ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) that involved the word “tree.”

My Tree

My Tree

This is how mine turned out.

I made it with polymer clay, a mix of both fimo and sculpey brands.

There are 2 coats of satin finish gloss that I put on after it was baked.

My main goal was to show how what is underneath the plant, the half of it that we don’t see above ground, is just as essential as the parts we do see.
