4th Grade-Paper Sculpture
4th Graders learned about some modern day paper sculpture artists that are internationally known. Paper sculpture is a modern day art from that is becoming increasingly popular. For this project students used their knowledge of radial symmetry to create an awesome abstract design. Their designs could look like a starburst, a firework, a flower, a tire spoke...almost anything! Students had free color choice for their designs. Many chose to do patterns, while others used a variety of colors.
Students created "darts" for this project. They folded a 2" by 2" paper square three times to create their darts. The folding was similar to the beginnings of a paper airplane fold. Then students glued their darts onto a 12" by 12" black paper base.
I think the challenge of this projects was cutting enough squares of each color for all these paper artists!
Students feedback to me: This was one of their very favorite projects this year!
That's always great to hear!
These are marvelous-go 4th Grade!
