Angry Birds Invade Lincoln Ave Art Class
An Invasion of Angry Birds
Brings Excitement to Lincoln Art Class
Standard pinch-pot lessons underwent a transformation during Mrs. Anne Marie Podlas' art classes at Lincoln Avenue. One class, Mr. Campbell’s Fifth-graders, took the class with clay in an interesting new direction by creating “Angry Birds,” those wing-less creatures from the popular video game which are deployed as aerial missiles—via sling shots—against pigs. Because the game is so popular at all levels, the students were enthusiastic about learning how to combine two pinch-pots to make one bird. After painting their models, the class put them on display.
“Angry” birds they might be called, but the general consensus of all who viewed the finished pieces was “soooo cute!”
