The sculptures you see in the Youth Room are not commissioned pieces by professional artists. The Art Survey students at the South Milwaukee High School created large scale paper mache sculptures for their final 3-D project. The students used classic children's book characters as an inspiration. Their teacher, Mrs. Maggie Wetzel, helped them develop the characters.You will find Captain Underpants, Little Red Ridding Hood, Snoopy, How to train your dinosaur and many other story book characters.
Art Survey is a foundations art course offered at the South Milwaukee High School that allows students at many different levels an opportunity to experience various media. Besides the paper mache sculptures on display this summer, students worked with ceramics, metal and ivory soap.
