Last year I began teaching the 8th and 9th Art Elective group (which are the oldest kids in the school I teach at). This was a great challenge because the way this Art class is taught is obviously very different from my other classes. I wanted to plan projects and assignments which would be appealing and challenging for them. Though we started the year learning and talking about artists like Dalí, Picasso, Magritte and Kahlo, I also wanted my students to have a chance to appreciate work by artists of today.
In my search for artwork that could be used as inspiration for a 3D project (I usually plan for at least one each semester-with all my grades), I came across a wonderful artist that makes paper maché sculptures in a style that I thought would appeal to my students. Her name is Juliana Bollini and she is a visual artist living in Brazil. She is absolutely amazing at making paper maché artwork. Visit the following links to view some of her wonderful work!

Here is a video of the artist talking about her creative process: https://vimeo.com/55403721

Finished student projects! Amazing!
