Middle Schoolers stretched their creative muscles in the newly opened Arts & World Languages Center in all sorts of ways this spring. They even dabbled in the art of food — making art that looks like real food, that is.
“Food has been a topic in art forever because it’s important to our world,” Middle School art teacher Fran Savarin said. Seventh-graders learned about the Japanese art of Sampuru, creating plastic foods that look real, and then took a turn making their own with clay. Out of the kiln came popcorn, pie and so many delectable treats that you have to take a second look to know they arenʼt edible.
