A huge part of the event aside from the eating, drinking, and being merry is the silent auction. Every year the event coordinators come to the art department asking for donations of student work.
|Not sure if this is from this year or last year but this is a project the other art teacher does almost every year with her classes. The goal for the students is to play with tangible texture as much as with color gradations.|
|Material used on this giant baseball was gauze for the surface of the ball and then felt for the stitching.|
|I believe the surface of this volleyball and the patterning of it was created from plaster. Not sure though. (Plaster is a big thing we use around these parts so it's a pretty safe assumption to make.)|
So yeah. In about a week and a half or so, these are all up for grabs (or rather bids) to help make the annual fund of the school a LITTLE bit better, bigger, and healthier to keep the private school I work at afloat.
