We’ve had our first masterpiece! This project went back and forth for at least two weeks. The student was originally working on another design, but it just didn’t seem to me to be getting to masterpiece level. He had the beginnings of the knife in his gallery, though, and I really liked the complexity of the handle, as well as the possibility of a life-sized print, so I encouraged him to pursue that design. Later I realized the problematic nature of a knife print in school, and suggested maybe a loaf of bread would tone it down a bit. There’s one mistake I won’t make again! The student took these suggestions in stride, though, as well as learning new techniques to be able to print his designs, such as cutting the larger pieces into sections. This is entirely student work, aside from one coat of primer (we don’t have a good place to spray paint at school – I’m working on that!). I’m very proud of the work, and pleased at how well the CV3D Club has worked as a whole to get him to this point. I think this has also helped inspire many other students to expand their designs as well, based on the number of comments and questions about it!
