Express- I communicated through my work. My art work is intended to say how much I love chocolate ! So I began to think chocolate? Hey why not Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. It just shows how much I enjoy chocolate and anything that has to relate to it.
I observed. Observing my surroundings made me look and see what limited materials I have and could use due to moving to another location for school. My subject matter was the theme Willy Wonka and its characters, I knew I couldn't make every character with the amount of time I had so I made something to represent each character. It was important for me to observe because my pumpkin was slightly small and no pumpkin is perfectly Round.
I took risks. I tried new things like making little pieces/sculptures out of aluminum foil I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but it started working well. I did have some challenges, the hot glue gun would sometimes dry to fast and leave glue all over the pumpkin. Below is my representation of each character.
Chocolate Bar/Wrapper- Augustus Gloop
Golden Ticket- Charlie Bucket
Blueberry/Blue Girl- Violet Beauregarde
Lollipop- Veruca Salt
Boy in Tv- Mike Teavee
Green headed Guy- Oompa Loompa
