MASON, OH (FOX19) - New student-created sculptures are being showcased throughout the school and featured prominently in the school’s main entrance.
Mason High School art teacher Lisa Eichner teaches sculpting. And, while students also get their hands dirty with clay in her class, Eichner wanted students to begin the year by experimenting with creating life size sculptures using packing tape and plastic wrap.
"I saw this project online and wanted to do a life size figure, something that was enjoyable for the kids that they could get their hands on," Eichner said.
Working in teams, students thought about what position they wanted their sculpture to take. Then, they wrapped a team member’s body in layers of plastic wrap and packing tape. Finally, they cut off the “casts” and sealed the seams.
Students’ sculptures took on lives of their own. There are cheerleaders, dancers, abstract thinkers, superheroes, and “Comet Strong” sculptures throughout the halls.
