Old news, new art

May 17, 2017 | Mr. Brandon's Form III class got their hands dirty this morning during a papier-mâché workshop.

Hannah G. decided to create a life-sized fox with the papier-mâché technique that uses a simple paste made of glue and water. Old newspaper strips are dipped into the paste and then applied to the created form in a layering fashion until it is entirely covered. Once the piece is dry, it can be sanded and painted however the artist wishes. Along with Hannah’s fox, we saw piñatas, masks, globes–even a Mickey Mouse head!
