Cadet Creativity

The cadets have been busy in their various art classes and we think you’ll agree…the results are outstanding!

1. Our cadets in Studio Art worked with clay to create pieces that represented “Body”. Ethan Hassane created a pond within an Altoid tin using polymer clay and resin. Serena Yang created an anatomical model of a head out of air-dry clay and acrylic paint. Robin Zhou created a model of the Japanese character, Totoro, using air-dry clay and acrylic paint. William Mayfield created a turtle out of polymer clay.

2. Cadets in Studio Art also finished up “Identity” in textiles. The cadets learned to sew, weave, and embroider to create these pieces. Woven Nike headband by Josh Antoine. Bart Simpson embroidery by Sara Elhouti. Stuffed plushie based on a video game character by Robin Zhou. Airborne patch by Michael Yusupov. Woven piece by Matthew Montes.

3. Zhengkun Yang created this elaborately woven tapestry.

4. In Middle School Art, Michael Zelenger is currently using the grid method of drawing to accurately represent his dog. This method is championed by the artist Chuck Close.
