Another round of sketches was collected just before Thanksgiving. Below is just a sampling of the fun and creative sketches I got to enjoy! As a side note...there are a few from the last round mixed in that I missed posting last time.
Our latest artist study involved a Swiss sculptor named Giacometti. The students really enjoyed guessing the names of his spare, thin, small sculptures that center around people and animals. The thing they enjoyed the most was looking at the emotions and movement portrayed by the seemingly simple sculptures. We then had a blast (I say we because I made one too!) creating wire and aluminum foil sculptures of our own. Another dimension was added with shadow projections on a piece of tag board. This was a quick, fun art lesson working with another 3 dimensional medium. Check out some of the results below!
