Come one, come all and see these fabulous freaks under the Big Top. In this class we will explore the phenomenon of the side show and the amazing art posters this bizarre form of entertainment generated. Students will review a brief history of the carnival or circus side show and the types of fantastic acts that were featured, real and fictional. Students will create their own side show character, write a personal history or story for it, design a poster for their character’s performance, and then sculpt their creature three-dimensionally in clay.
