Bean Finneran
On display at Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, CA
Artist: Bean Finneran (1971-     )
Cleveland Born
Career beginnings in avant-garde theater in Boston
Designed Jewelry in San Francisco
returned to painting 
eventually began to roll and stack clay
Project: Create a sculpture piece inspired by this work of art
Step1: start with a styrofoam florist cone. 
Step2: cut chenille stems in half or close to half
Step3: add a bead on the end of each half and bend the stem so the bead does not fall off
Step4: place the 1/2 pipe cleaner in the cone
Step5: continue working on this project until you have it completed and are happy with the results
Note: Students will study monochromatic color schemes, pipe cleaners will be displayed by color but if a student wants to use multi colored pipe cleaners they will not be discouraged. 
One styrofoam florist cone per student
Multi-colored beads for the ends
