After making the groups, our group ot ideas from the internet of 3D art projects. We made a google docs where we had a list of ideas and pictures of some art projects. Surprisingly we found multiple ideas that all seemed interesting and fun to make. Although, out of multiple ideas our group decided to make a skateboard that was made out of cans.
After deciding to make the skateboard out of trash we went around campus looking for cans and ended up with a lot of cans of different color. After we collected multiple cans (about 150- for only 3 people) we went on to making the shape of the skateboard. We got wood and drew out the shape of the skateboard and then our teacher continued on by cutting the wood into the shapes we drew out. From there we had to make the edges smoother so we got sand paper to smoothen the edges. From there we got to sticking the cans to the actual piece of wood. this was a long process that is still in progress. We are a group of 3 and so far we only have 2 boards (only the front) covered in colorful cans!
Below is a picture of what we got so far. We still aren't sure how to make the wheels as we need something that can hold us so please comment below some suggestion on ideas. The pictures below are pictures of my skateboard:
Here is an updated version for the back of the skateboard. Orginially we didn't do anything for the back side but then we decided to paint them in our favourite colors and add things that we personally love. We still don't know what to do for the wheels - we might just stick cans (like the original photo did) if you have any ideas/suggestions please comment below!
