How are these funky pieces of art created? According to Shanda McCloskey, our wonderful art teacher here at Creekview, the sculptures are created the following way:
The students work in groups of 4-5. They begin by choosing one member to be “wrapped.” The first layer is saran wrap and then 4 to five layers of packaging tape is applied on top of the models limbs and torso. After the tape layers are thick enough to stand on their own, the students are cut out of their new “tape shells” leaving a hollow tape cast.
This exhibition features masterpieces from the founding cultures of Western civilization and will include more than 70 works from the Louvre’s unparalleled Egyptian, Near Eastern and Greco-Roman antiquities collections.

National PTA Reflections Program
National PTA believes all children deserve a quality arts education and encourages students to pursue artistic expression through participation in its annual arts Reflections Program. The program offers students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create and submit works of art in one or more of six areas: literature, musical composition, photography, visual arts (which includes art forms such as drawing, painting, print making, and collage), dance choreography and film/video production. In its more than 30-year history, the program has encouraged millions of students across the nation and in American schools overseas to create works of art.
Visit National PTA’s 2006-2007 Reflections Gallery – Georgia won four of the six Outstanding Interpretation awards.Students participate in the Reflections Program by submitting entries to their local PTA or PTSA. Any PTA/PTSA in good standing is eligible to sponsor a Reflections Program. For more information, go to http://www.georgiapta.org/resources-student-reflections.html .
