This is one of the participants said after being asked about using different materials at the weeky art class:
It was interesting to work with different materials each week. If somebody told me to make a leaf out of wire or a bird out of leaves, I would be thinking it was mad. But now that I’ve done it, I know it is possible to make.
To take a further step in finding materials for art from nature, this week, we used cooking ingredients as medium to build a house.
For an assignment last week, participants were asked to draw a house and a garden with a tree by incorporating various materials.
Based on their assignments, participants constructed a house by using dry pasta, spaghetti, macaroni and some biscuits.
Based on form and shape of ingredients, participants designed a roof, window and a door
by using pasta as a brick or a log.
These are their final works:
Next week, we will make a community- garden and participants were asked bring any material
to make `free-style’ mix-match collage.
