Robert Arneson Portrait Sculptures

Oh, how I love these students. We had been studying Robert Arneson and his portrait sculptures (see below for unglazed pieces).  The students, 8th graders who don't care about anything in the world, tried so hard on these. I was amazed at how a majority of students really took their time. What blew me away more was that they created characters, Batman, the Joker, a theater face, and other faces that you might recognize. The colors of glaze that we had were much more vibrant this time. I was quite impressed with these folks. We did go over step-by-step instructions about how to create the faces, but many of them "ran with it"!
