MUJC progress so far

IMG_20180210_174624248Abdulla drew an amazing image of Gail’s dog.  So much changes in the translation to 3D.  I did my best to get the spirit of it.  It will continue to change.  These group projects are like whisper down the lane and what you start with transforms along the way as you add new techniques and materials.  In the end it seems everyone involved feels a sense of ownership.  I love this.  Personally, I made some great discoveries about foam cutting tools this week.  I will never use a corrugated shaper again because they make a fine mess that sticks to you and everything else by static electricity.  A “knife” of all sorts is the way to go.  I found some info online about using a sharpened drywall knife to cut foam and it is great.  The trades are an excellent source of information to tweak to art.  I bought knife blades for my portable jigsaw..also great.  I then tried a knife blade on my Fein multitool and wow…amazing too.  No more little bits to clean up!  this is such  a BIG improvement for me not only because power tools make things easier but doing hand cutting works better too.  I now have shavings to collect and they don’t respond to static electricity the same way.  We started making clay bits last week but I am having too much fun to photograph it…hopefully next week I will take some pics.  The students are doing so well…I only IMG_20180210_175618522wish I knew what was going on in their heads.
