Walk With The Arts

Friday September 23rd, twelve students from Foley Middle School along with Mrs. Weiner, Visual Art teacher, and Mrs. Harris, Gifted and Talented Coordinator, participated with the Berea Arts Council’s Walk with the Arts Event.  Walk with the Arts is an arts educational event that all fourth grade students from Madison County Schools, Berea Community Elementary and Model participate with.  The event has booths set up for students to see demonstrations by a variety of artisans.  There was story-telling, dancing, wood-turning, blacksmith, felting, ceramics and much more.  Foley student volunteers were in charge of two weaving booths using standing looms.  To prepare for the lesson, the students had to build the large standing looms, learn how to warp it and the weaving process.  This was a great leadership opportunity as they taught around 970 fourth graders the terminology and process of weaving.

3Doodler Cube Creatures

6th Grade Cube Creatures with the 3Doodler

 

6th grade Visual Art students in Mrs. Weiner’s class have been studying the Elements of Art Line, Shape, Form and Value.  Using these Elements they created Cube Creatures with the 3Doodler pens.  Students started out making six squares with a cross-hatching value technique that they assembled to create a cube with the 3Doodler PLA plastics. Using triangular prisms, they created legs for their Cube Creature that would have strength to hold the weight of the cube.  Once they assembled the cube and triangular prisms together, they used the 3Doodler ABS plastics to build arms and additional attachments, such as eyes, mouth and hair.  From Dragon Cube Creatures to Skateboarding Cube Creatures, it was an exciting STEAM lesson.

Plaster Casting Demonstration

Foley Middle School 8th grade Visual Art students were given a demonstration about plaster casting by fellow peer Holden Berry.  Berry created a monster mask over a plaster armature using oil based clay.  To prepare the mask for casting, petroleum jelly is applied generously to prevent sticking and then plaster is brushed on over delicate areas and then poured over the mask.  Burlap strips are added to strengthen the mold.  Berry’s interest in making monster masks began in 6th grade and with the assistance of his father, he has made various masks, a few of which he has sold to collectors.
