Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the coolest art teacher of them all? It has got to be our own Ms. McCloskey. And her art students. This week, their contribution is three-dimensional tape sculpture. Check out their first three fabulous contributions. For more information on tape sculpture, and instructions on how to create your own, you can go to TapeSculpture.org. OK, you know that they’re not using live objects in the website’s demonstrations, right? Don’t try taping up live babies to make a sculpture. That is a DOLL, not a baby. Real babies do not survive taping. Our students used members of their groups as “molds” for their work, and they did a fantastic job! Kudos to all our great Creekview artists, and Ms. McCloskey, the world’s greatest art teacher! Oh, yeah! Don’t forget to check out the Cherokee County High School Art Show 2008 on Friday, March 14, 6-8 PM, featuring Adam O., Olivia S., Amanda M., Nikki C., Mandy G., Maura M., Briana G., Taylor A., Allison G., Kelsey S. Navin T., Haley B., Justin V., Britney R., Yana H., and Maggie B. For more art sculptures, check out the Grizzly Den blog and The Unquiet Library blog

Don’t You Just Love Our Collage Scan Art!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on February 14, 2008

My ScrapblogI was so inspired by Ms. McCloskey’s art classes that I decided to try my hand at some art myself. Sadly, I have zero artistic ability. Unsadly, the folks at Scrapblog have tons of it, just waiting for me to borrow. It works like the scrapbooking you do by hand with all the cute stickers and frames and letters and “stuff” you can add to your pictures to make them cooler, but it is way easier and faster. Well, in theory, at least. I had a few glitches in posting mine to WordPress, but the second time I tried, it posted quickly and beautifully! You just select a background, import the pictures you want to add from Flickr or your computer, drag and drop the aforementioned extra “stuff” into your scrapbook page (or delete any of the stuff you don’t like from the page), save your final copy, and post to your blog, MySpace, FaceBook, or zillions of other websites. OK, maybe not zillions, but several, which is almost as good as a zillion. If you can’t count.
