February Break 2020: Unleash Your Inventor @ MoCA Westport


February Break is for stretching your legs, and your creative brains too! We’ll put our students up to the challenge with many arts-based STEAM activities involving changing, altering, and reusing a variety of found and sourced materials. Students will learn how to look at their work differently, to change a work from 1 dimension into 3, to alter the shape and appearance of their work, and to make their 3D art structures sturdy. Activities will include sculpture, resin and amber casting, abstract portrait collage, balloon sculptures and functional model boat design. Please provide a snack and a brown bag meal for our art movie lunch break.

Thursday 2/20: DOUBLE-BUBBLE
Students will draw a design of a bubble-based structure before building individual sculptural forms out of balloons, and casting them in instant-drying papier-maché. Options include bowls, animals, or fully abstracted forms. Works will be fully realized with gouache paint.
