Farmington and Dogwood’s wonderful 5th graders are building trophies! They started by learning to make simple foil sculptures of the human figure, an ancient subject in the art world. Students learned about figure artists Edgar Degas, Alberto Giacometti, and Auguste Rodin, whose work is on display at the Dixon Gallery in Memphis, TN right now. They placed their unique figure sculptures on the top of their trophies, which are made mostly of recycled materials and donated masking tape (Thank you parents!!). Everyone thought of someone awesome who deserved a trophy and wrote plaques for each of them. Some kids are planning on giving their trophy to themselves, let’s be honest. And they deserve one- Most Amazing Trophy Ever Award.IMG_1963IMG_1975IMG_1984 IMG_1985 IMG_1986 IMG_1987 IMG_1988 IMG_1989 IMG_1990 IMG_1991IMG_1980 IMG_1981 IMG_1982
