Marc Quinn

April 14, 2016

Very industrious workshop today. We looked at British visual artist and sculptor Marc Quinn and taking inspiration from sculptures of his head made from his own frozen blood - led to lots of discussion about whether blood really does turn blue without oxygen. We googled it and it does - we decorated polystyrene heads. We also looked at some examples of sensationalist art - a sculpture by a Chinese artist made entirely from panda poo for example. 
We decided not to use our own blood and poo and opted for paints and a huge variety of craft materials. The kids were engrossed and also very complimentary about each other's efforts which was lovely to hear. Then we took a 'family photo' (as one girl called it) of our punk rockers, zombies and aliens. Ace afternoon.
