Fourth graders studied sculpture in the process of transforming a generous donation of various size tubes to 3D art! They began with sketching ellipses and cylinders and had to create a 2D sketch of their designs before proceeding to construction of their sculptures. They viewed a number of sculpture studios, touring them virtually on our Smartboard. Then they spray-painted the sculptures outdoors. Throughout the process the artists were encouraged to engage with light and shadow as it related to their designs. As photographed here, the experience of painting outside was amazing for the artists as they experienced firsthand the shift of light as they handled their sculptures and applied the paint. The finishing touch included adding metal elements such as screen and wire to the pieces, in an effort to further intrigue the viewer and the experience of the art.
