Giant Paper Maché
Paper Maché is a three dimensional medium using paper and adhesive for construction.
Students will create one three dimensional sculpture as a large group.
The unit requires students work together as a team, engineer a larger-than-life sculpture that is balanced and moveable, and paint a finish on the surface that is exciting and precise.
MODEL OF SCULPTURAL FORM
ROUGH DRAFT - Designing a Non-representational Geometric Pattern
Researching for your Design
YOUR DESIGN SHOULD BE NON-REPRSENTATIONAL (NO IMAGES OF OBJECTS).
YOUR DESIGN SHOULD BE GEOMETRIC. IT IS A LOT EASIER TO CUT STRAIGHT LINES THAN CURVED LINES.THE MORE ORNATE THE DESIGN, THE MORE INTERESTING THE SCULPTURE.
REFER TO CULTURES THAT USE GEOMETRIC PATTERNS: ISLAMIC ART, INDIGENOUS/FIRST NATIONS PEOPLES, ETC. YOU CAN LOOK AT ART FROM MIDDLE EASTERN COUNTRIES, SOUTH ASIA, AND INDIGENOUS POPULATIONS WORLD-WIDE FOR GREAT EXAMPLES OF GEOMETRIC PATTERNS.
