The WMS art students have been hard at work on creating their individual interactive sculptures after finishing up their time doing printmaking. The new project that they are working on is called Altered Books. These Altered books are books that we saved from being thrown away and will go in and "alter" every inch of it. They are doing such things as carving in and on the cover, gluing on 3D objects onto the cover, cutting out pages, adding in pockets, and altering already existing pages. They are really coming together, make sure to ask your student about them today! Pictures to come soon.
Just a heads up to all you art lovers out there if you want to see some amazing art make sure to get to this years Art Prize in Grand Rapids ASAP. The art is spread out all over the city, in places big and small. The artists that participate come from all over the world too, which gives a lot of diversity between art pieces. Check it out!

Our goal is to help any students become enthusiasts about art and it's related topics! no need to be nervous, whether you are a extremely talented artist, or someone who is interested but not to confident about your ability's, there is a place here for you. We do lots of different projects in class, and learn about famous artists like Chuck Close, Banksy, Dr. Seuss, and many more. We also stride to make a difference outside the art room, with our sights set on many different opportunities to give back using art.
