THE PROJECT:

Students from area high school will be participating in team and individual art challenges at the High Museum. Paint Love artists will judge the super fun categories listed below:

Session 1: Individual Competitions

  1.  Face Jugs- Create a clay jug with an expressive face
  2. Q-Tip Architecture- Inspired by ancient Far East Architecture, assemble a small building using only q-tips and hot glue.
  3. Zoomed-In Drawings - Focus on one small area of a still life and illustrate what you see.
  4. Animorphs- Using your phone for source imagery, assemble a new face using different peoples’ facial features. Mix it up and include one feature of any animal!!

Session 2: Team Competitions

  1. Claykenstein- Teams will create a clay monster by individually creating body parts (meant to look like they do not go together), then assembling at the end to create their monster.
  2. Cardboard Furniture- Teams of 3 will construct cardboard furniture that will ideally be functional.
  3. Exquisite Corpse-  Teams will be given a template to draw a section of a body with a background. Bodies will be assembled at the end into one figure.  
  4. Rep Your SchoolCreate a composition that is built of symbols that represent your school using drawing or painting materials. 

Note: This is not a Paint Love organized event and there is an entry fee to get into the High.
