Classroom Project: Franken Bikes

Students at five city recreation centers  in St. Petersburg, FL were challenged to create pastel chalk or colored pencil bicycles in a surreal background featuring unusual wheels and riders.  Projects relate to our Bicycle Safety theme sponsored by Jeeves Law Group and Creative Pinellas. These two students from Thomas "Jet" Jackson Rec. Center hold their completed collaged art.

Talented and fast artist Roberts.jpg

Two talented student artists were quick studies. This young man from Child's Park recreation center had enough time to produce two renderings.

The young lady above from Roberts recreation, our "guest" center, finished with enough time left to cut 3D wheels and mount them to cardboard spacers as a help to other classmates. Note her use of spirals, a subject of intense, life-long interest for Dalí. In the background, Instructor Melissa Wykell assists other students with their projects.
