Clay Busts

In this sculpture class, Little Artists studied  the Californian sculpturist, Robert Arneson. Robert Arneson part of the FUNK ART movement,  made many famous comedic sculptures of many found items and himself.  Below is a piece you can see at  the  San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. 220px-Arneson_artist

We  captured our own personality in a clay bust, similar to  Arneson’s cartoonish “funk art” style.  IMG_8842 IMG_8875 IMG_8877

We learned about clay armatures, texture techniques and design elements such as form and proportion.

The clay busts were then painted  and glazed.
