Artistic Skills
Using paint, cardboard, steel
wool, wrought iron and other novel
media, University art students
make use of their unique creative
Freshmen art students begin
their training by modeling- such
objects as movable cardboard toys.
Often representing nursery story
characters, cartoons and imagina-
tive figures, these toys are placed
on a white paper background.
These colorful objects are made
movable by connecting the various
parts to the background with pa-
per bolts.
Papier-Mache Figures
Papier-mache figures comprise
another interesting art project.
Chicken wire, shaped and molded
into different forms, serves as the
skeleton. The character takes on a
more realistic appearance when a
newspaper and paste combination
is placed around this skeleton.
Ruffles, laces, pieces of cloth and
colored paper create an illusion of
clothes and ornamentation for the
figure. Steel wool or straw may be
used for the hair, while facial
characteristics are painted on.
In the final process, the figure is
painted with tempra and shel-
lacked, if desired.
A Advertising Art
Three-dimensional art for ad-
vertising is also included in the
various art projects. Photographs
covered with zypotone are placed
on balsa wood, forming a wide va-
riety of attractive 3-D art. Art stu-
dents have used this type of art
in their classes to advertise travel.
By creating these various objects
students may learn how to use dif-
ferent kinds of media correctly and



case of rain, alternate plans for
dancing indoors have been made.
Entertainment for the evening
will be provided by John Bonino,
the Ann Arbor Alley Cats and Paul
