In art, when we create a PICTURE of something, that process, at its most basic level, INVOLVES putting shapes on the page. Some things are shapes we recognize like a bike wheel or a MOUNTAIN peak.  But other things are shapes we don't have names for; things like marshmallow fluff or a pile of laundry. So welcome to Blobs! where we  explore the world of these Blobby, organic shapes!

Each project in this unit takes its inspiration from some sort of "blob."  Project Artists will receive step-by-step video instruction in a variety of mediums.

The 4 full-length projects generally take multiple sessions to complete, while the bonus projects can usually be completed in one sitting.
