After learning about some of the elements of design students collected natural materials that related to shape, color, or line and created natural material collages in the campus quad. After completion the class discussed the tradition of permanence in art while watching their collages rejoin the fallen leaves.
Students studying to receive certification in Art Education created these mythological creatures after learning about the paper mache process. Each sculpture is based on the combination of at least two animals, a structural armature, and the use of painted patterns to create a patina.
