Mud art

Today's video is a documentary of a project by members of the Woodburn High Art Club, who designed and created 14 sheetrock-backed earthen art panels to decorate their commons area. This film follows their process of transforming their commons area to reflect more of the warmth of living that takes place below the high steel ceiling and cold white walls, and shows how simple ingredients such as mud, sand and recycled newspaper can be used to create beautiful art.

Response to the installation was not only positive, but "overwhelming" according to art teacher Catherine Johnstone. If you've never seen "mud art" in action before, you will find this video enlightening and entertaining, and if you want to try it yourself check out these books by Kiko Denzer.
