					Pop-Art Dinner Plate
Finding Art in the Everyday
Using a sculpting technique with clay, we will re-create a dinner plate of your favorite foods, or a meal with a theme. We will attempt to accurately re-create the shapes, colors, textures, and details of each food item. We will also attempt to play with food associations, use visual pun, or play with proportion to send a visual message.

Suggestions for themes: Favorite Foods Junk Foods Sweets Holiday Dinner Vegetarian Food Sushi Fruits and Vegetables Cultural Foods Health Food

Steps for brainstorming and creative process: 1. Make a word map with the types of food you chose. By making word associations, you can brainstorm options for changing the food or adding something to it, creating a visual pun (food that changes into something else, or a clever addition to your dinner plate that will transform it). 2. List accessories that are typically served with your food. List the events or times that your food is typically served. You may use these to help think of visual puns. 3. Sketch out your magazine/Internet images of food, being careful of the arrangement. Overlap food items. Use odd numbers instead of even. Achieve movement by making food point in a direction. 4. Make a plate to hold the food, by rolling a slab and fitting it into a mold. You may make utensils to go with your meal (forks, spoons, knives). You may use your cutlery to make a visual pun. *Level one must make a cup, that visually matches, goes along with, or adds to the meaning of your dinner plate (can be a tea cup with a handle or different type of cup).
