One day, Dom, a Crotched Mountain School students, walked up to Eric Petersen, the School Art Teacher, with a unique request: he wanted to create his own “Stewie,” the popular character from the Fox show Family Guy. Dom had been inspired by a recent art project Eric had organized for Crotched Mountain students that involved layering paper mache over plastic jugs, then painting the creations.
Dom wishd to put his own spin on it and Eric was more than willing to oblige. His goal is to empower his students to explore their artistic expression and whatever can be done to support their spark of creative genius, he’s into.
A few rolled up newspapers and glue and paper mache and some highly detailed painting sessions later…voila! Stewie!
