WIRE/TISSUE PAPER SCULPTURE
This project involves creating a self-standing structure using armature wire and tissue paper. Students learn to use pliers to shape the wire into recognizable objects, figures in action and animals were also represented. The pieces become solid as the tissue paper is added. Students research a famous monument or sculpture in a city of their choice and discuss their findings in class.
The structure is put together using foam board, tempera paint and “found objects” combining with an array of materials which fit a favorite theme. The project brings together all skills learned in both Basic Design and 3-D Design.
COURSE STARTS JANUARY 2020
