class description

Found-Object Sculptures. Since we experience the world in 3-dimensions, the students will get to make something 3-D from their imaginations. Collaborative from the start, everyone will collect materials to use…(cans, paper tubes, wire, clean yogurt cups, bottle caps, cast-off sections of high-tech instruments, cardboard…and many more) This gives students an opportunity to think about their art work and begin producing ideas when they’re outside the classroom. Working together in pairs or groups of three, the students will make a sculpture – perhaps to scale?! An animal? A creature from a book? A kid-size human? A machine? With any of these subjects, kinetic movement, sound and light may come into play in the finished pieces.

Required Skills for Students to Be Successful in This Class:

Compliance with Family Rights & Responsibilities.

Everyone will be asked to help gather upcycled-recycled-trash to treasures! I have given some ideas in the class description, but we will discuss more on the first day of class, and see what ideas the students and their families have too!
