3D Design project using environmentally friendly pulp board material. Don’t throw them away reuse the material in a artistic way. See the many creative ways the students at Kean University found to use the materials in their art work.
A unique horse was created by Nick Nardo from scraps. How’s that for recycling?
While exploring through piles left over wood in the wood bin. These scraps were from other woodworkers at Kean University of Union, NJ. Nick, a future art school teacher, was attempting to complete his art class assignment. Then he saw the pieces that would become “Scraps the horse” .
Piece by piece Nick constructed a work with both beauty and grace. Notice the forms shown. The forms are implied . Nick does not attempt to fill in every available space in the wood. So, your mind is forced to fill in those spaces.
What is your mind saying about the spaces in this 3D art creation called “Scraps?
The only way to really get an idea of the beauty of 3D art is to see it. Below is a description of an art assignment given to my art class. I have also included several pictures that resulted from the art assignment.
When you first look at it does it look like it is hard to create? If you follow the assignment you just might be surprised at what you can actually create.
Objective: Create a 3D asymmetrical design.
This 3D asymmetrical design assignment should be done using a layout that takes advantage of the sculptural forms your paper can make. Think about how your work will be viewed from different angles of light and the new forms the shadows create.
Materials: Bristol board or plan paper and glue work mounted on 11″ x 14″ mat board or foam core finished and with flat white spray paint. This project should take no longer than 5 hours.
Dictionary definition of asymmetrical:
Having parts that fail to correspond to one another in shape, size, or arrangement; lacking symmetry.
Student:Maria Oses – Kean University Interior Design Major
Maria Oses was able to build this ship with much patience, skill and creativity. The ship is placed so that the form of the ship breaks the picture plane at the upper quadrant and on an angle to show the strength of a mighty ship. Maria became very in involved in process of her work and put in many hours, but that is what it takes to take your work to the next level.
Kean University 3D Student, Sara Fergenson, designed this creative motif from her cup pulp board coffee trays. This is one of many examples of student work to follow. Many sculptures can be created from an environmentally friendly materials. Try this project yourself and see what you can do.
Maybe a graceful ballerina is waiting to evolve out of your tray also. Sara is our future Edgar Degas.
