The Garden City High School sculpture and graphic design classes are excited to announce that they have teamed up with the fourth-graders at Jennie Wilson Elementary School on a collaborative art project called “Monsters in the Closet.”
Erika Victor’s fourth grade art students used their creativity and imaginations to design and paint a series of little monsters. Emily Baker’s GCHS Sculpture 1 classes are learning the techniques and skills of needle felting, and how to create a fiber art sculpture.
They will be bringing the “little monsters” to life by needle felting a three dimensional sculpture of the fourth graders’ designs. Joshua Greenberg’s GCHS Graphic Design class is learning to further their skills in Adobe Illustrator to design a three dimensional interactive package for the sculptures.
A presentation and workshop will be held from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 at Jennie Wilson Elementary to finalize the collaboration with all students. Some of the creations will be displayed at the Educational Support Center on Nov. 27 and 28 during the K-12 Art Show.
