For the first project, students were asked to make a collage using their favorite colors, textures and patterns.
The participants in the Sculpture & Performance activity at Camp Carmalt are off to a great start! It the first week, students personalized their own sketchbooks, practiced sketching the figure, made self-portrait collages, and constructed sculptural models. As the projects progressed from two-dimensional collage to three-dimensional construction, students learned valuable skills that will help them in their final Sculpture & Performance presentation.
Sculpture & Performance is a program of Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, taught and developed by artist Tom Sarver. Participants recently completed sixth and seventh grades. The class is part of Summer Dreamers Academy, a summer learning program offered by Pittsburgh Public Schools.
