Art Afro #71 – “Container of Afro’d Friends” by Unicia R. Buster – October 5, 2015

“Container of Afro’d Friends” by Unicia R. Buster

Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15 – October 15 each year. (Seems a bit odd to me to split the month.) So for an art project, we did Ojo de Dios which translates to Eye of God. We made them using popsicle sticks and yarn. I ended up making 4 of them and my volunteer made one. Why so many? Well, with each group, I had to demonstrate how to make one. On Mondays, I have three groups and one of those groups, a patient came later. I started playing around with them later and thought I could make a box from them. A little hot glue and this is what I got. It turned out to be not much of a box but definitely a container.

The day was drawing near and I wanted my container to relate to Afros somehow. Each side of my container reminded me of a screen they used to use to change clothes behind. So I thought it would be cute to to have a person peeking over each side. It didn’t turn out like I expected but there you have it.

This activity was based on the prompt from Creative Sprint:

DAY 5

Make a container, something that can hold something else.
