Art sculpture - Year 1

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Jaxf1, Apr 5, 2011.

  1. Hi, I have done 2 sculpture things over the last 2 terms and they have both worked really well.
    * Wire moulded into a shape and then wrapped in masking tape, could be a beanstalk shape or a character. Then just paint it. And stick it some clay if you want it to stand up. We made 'Oscars' and had a ceremony congratulating people in the class for what they were good at.
    * 'Easy' paper mache - screw up newspaper and use masking tape to join bits until you have the shape you want. Cover this in a layer of white kitchen roll. secure with masking tape. Use a watery mix of PVA to cover the sculpture in tissue paper and voile! Dead easy, just like paper mache but so much les hassle, easy to make any shape you want and light enough to hang from the ceiling! We have made fruits and veg but I have seen all manner of animals, faces, and even the FA cup made out of this (we are big fans in our school after having done it on an INSET day!)
    Hope this helps.
