Food, Foliage, and Raven’s Eggs

Inspired by the recent warm weather and the stunning view of Little Island outside the classroom window, the artists at Open Studio at Pier 57 sculpted their favorite items — both real and imaginary — that grow out of the ground. Kids particularly enjoyed learning about color mixing as they blended clay together to create their own unique colors. 

In addition to food and foliage, kids stretched their imaginations to create solar systems, rocket ships, a pizza tree, and even a mysterious island housing hidden treasure. 

One artist even created a tree full of raven’s eggs.

For her, “growing” meant raven babies that are born in the springtime.
