I try to look for unusual ideas as drawing topics for my Grade 10 students. I came across the work of Cheeming Boey on Pinterest. “Cheeming Boey is a game designer and animator based in Newport Beach, California. He creates designs on styrofoam cup using ordinary sharpie pens.”I didn’t specify what mediums my students should use. I gave them the Styrofoam cups bought from a local supermarket & told them to give them back to me transformed. I did show them the following image in a slide show:
Most girls like Catherine and Elizabeth drew on the cups either using fineliners (sharpies) or they used ballpoint pens.
Some students transformed their cups into mini sculptures. Keyla’s sculptural cup was inspired by Bakers Tennis Biscuits.
