WK1- Art Experience-Plaster Casting

Before this activity, I had never used plaster before in my life. However, I plan on using plaster more in the future because it is amazing how plaster has the ability to turn a hollow shape of something into a solid object. On January 26, 2017, I went to the beach and tried to attempt this activity. I thought this assignment was going to be really fun and exciting because I love going to the beach, especially during the summer. However, this is my first time going to the beach nearby school throughout my whole two years of attending California State University, Long Beach. After digging two holes near the water, I put my hands in there to make a hollow mold. Then, I mixed the plaster with the water and poured it inside. The wait was horrendous due to the weather conditions. My feet were absolutely frozen, and the wind was very strong. While waiting for my plaster to solidify, I would look around and take time to appreciate the scenic beauty of the beach. Around thirty minutes after, I took out my plaster and it turned out quite well! I was elated and plan on keeping it as a memory of the first time I used plaster. Overall, I loved this assignment because it was so unique. I have never taken a class where I had an assignment that required to go to the beach!
