Sculpture!

Beginning with a simple question, “Can we make big sculptures?” 6th graders explored the concept of abstraction, organic and geometric shapes, and 3 dimensionality in this latest lesson. After an initial planning stage, student teams began building frame works for out of cardboard, tape and hot glue.  They then covered everything in paper maché, a goopy but very fun process, and once dried, painted their pieces in Monochromatic color schemes.  This was a student driven project from start to finish and the results are stunning.
