Creative Anatomy at Fusion Academy by Eva BradleyPublished by: admin | Date: May : 15 : 2012 | Categories: Featured, Full time studies, Huntington Beach 1
Elia De Armas is a senior at Fusion Solana Beach in the San Diego area. She is very creative and enjoys working on various projects including video production. Her latest project (displayed above) was for the anatomy class and certainly not a simple task! Elia took on the challenge and created an extraordinary piece that wowed everyone. She made a mask of her face using molding mesh, drywall plaster, pieces of toilet paper, oils and water to create a mixture she applied over the mask. To make the teeth, she used her old retainer! The skull contains small holes for toothpick flags that carry the names of the individual cranial and facial bones. This sculpture is a functional piece of art as it will be used as an anatomical model for future students and hopefully inspires other creative minds!
