|Here is Matt's very cool mixed-media portrait done in sepia tones. This image served as the inspiration for the sculpture.|
Then we have this lovely character of a cheetah dressed in a hot pink kimono! You may be wondering what the supports are underneath the shoulder area. This sculpture was having technical difficulties in the construction phase, so we used a large cardboard spool to wedge it into for stability. The student artist, Donita, plastered right over it and it became part of the sculpture. It looked neat and it made the sculpture stable; now that's what I call having form and function!
|The flowers were cut and hot glued on from fabric remnants.|

Okay, so you thought the snake sculpture was the most creative because I told you it was, right? Well we can't forget to check out this "Royal Gorilla" created by Austin J. from Period 3. He certainly has an excellent abstract quality that I just can't resist, and his wealth is apparent thanks to the enormous gold crown on his head. But wait, the back view is so impressive that you need to see it for yourself to believe it...
What swagger this guy has as he tosses his flowing robes to the side and proceeds to walk to wherever he's walking. Could there be a "Gorilla Queen" just around the corner? Only Austin can tell you, but I can say that we were pretty psyched with the way this sculpture turned out!
That's all for now! Feel free to share this work with someone who would get a kick out of it... Just be sure to tell them where you saw it! www.room9art.blogspot.com.
