BROOKE COUNYTY, W.Va. Students put on a Peep Show at Brooke High School on Tuesday.
Art teacher Sara Roark admits it's not an original idea, but she said it gives her students a chance to get creative and make something unique using the popular Easter candy.
Sometimes they take apart doll parts or they will sculpt things from clay or they find leftover wallpaper they find pretty much anything they can get their hands on to create their vision, Roark said of her students.
Students get a week in class to work on whatever they can dream up. Emily Hone finished her scene called, Peeping Toms in just a couple of days.
I did a big mountain scene with a camp in the middle and spies on the side, Hone said.
Fifty-six students entered into the contest. Awards were handed out to the top three peep scenes.
Freshman Mia James won first place with a recreation of Alice in Wonderland.
Oliva Best won second place with the "up" house. The balloon was made from paper mache, and of course, peeps. The foundation is made up of cardboard and hot glue.
Then we used popsicle sticks to use all of siding and the shingles, Best said. And for the fence we used popsicle sticks, and then we used moss for the grass.
There was also a category for those who like to draw.
The first-place winner, A.J. Stone, did a version of Salvador Dali's "Persistence of Memory."
Instead of melting clocks, I thought peeps melt so I melted peeps, he said.
