My Students

I teach high school students in Vigo County. My classes are a mix of grade levels 9th through 12th grade. My students are very crafty and creative. They always want to build, draw, and paint. They love to create artwork so much that we run our supplies much faster than expected. My classes are usually full with 28 students in each class. In this project we will make a Hunger Awareness artwork using wire, markers, hot glue, and colored pencils.

My Project

High school 3D art students will create food out of wire and glue them down onto drawn place mats. The chenille stems are used to create these. The place mats will have hunger awareness facts incorporated into the design. We will use the colored pencils and markers on the place mats.

This project gets students building sculptures out of wire but it also makes students aware of the major issue some people struggle with every day - hunger.

This is a great project for hands-on building and learning wire techniques with great meaning behind it. Thank you for your help!
