I wasn’t sure how these were going to turn out, and I don’t think the pictures do them justice, but these sculptures created by our first graders turned out really cool! Before we began we talked about how sculpture is a 3-dimensional type of art so it is important to think about how it will look from all different angles, so they had to make sure they painted and patterned both sides of their mat board. The students had to use two colors on each piece of mat board, learning about the color wheel while mixing analogous colors. Then we added patterns on top of the paint with colored sharpies. The most challenging part of this project was cutting the slits so the mat board pieces could join together.
