I conducted paper mache classes for many years with kids.  So I know how much work it can be.  Marcia Morehead teaches art for the Fowlerville Community Schools.  She runs a paper mache class based upon my blog.   I’m very flattered.   Here are some of the pieces her students made.

Pamela Vogan Lynch also taught art in New York (one of many things she did over a 35 year career!)  She sent me a few photos of pieces made by her students.   I love seeing students getting the opportunity to play with this medium.  Thank you to Pam and all the art teachers out there who are brave enough offer this to their kids!

I’m always thrilled when people use my books and videos and to make something they love.  Here are more photos sent to me by people doing paper mache.   If you have paper mache art that you would like me to display just send them to me at dan@gourmetpapermache.com.   Enjoy!

I want to start with my friend and fellow artist, Matt, aka “Nubbie.”  He’s been making some great art.  I love the size and attitude of his projects.   Let’s start with his dragons.  Here is Matt with his giant dragon trophy!  Matt is the one on the left.   🙂
