Upper School students design foam sculptures

Upper School students are transitioning from the study of 2D into 3D art by cutting foam into pieces with a hot iron and transforming them into sculpture. Art teacher Daniel Vance asked students to construct a sculpture that represents two or more relationships using abstract shapes. “For instance, it could be parent and child, police and criminal, or teacher and student, but think how the shapes interact with one another. Ask yourselves what do the relationships mean, and how can you represent it with physical objects,” Vance said.
