My students have done it! They successfully completed their sculptures and shared their work with the students in China. For more details about the collaboration you can read this post: http://tinyurl.com/gnk2v43
We swapped oil pastel “negative space” drawings with Yew Chung International School (YCIS). The drawings we received needed to be turned into beautiful sculptures and shared back with YCIS. My students practised on paper first, which was followed by, drawing and cutting out of white card. They were assembled with hot glue, and spray painted. All students certainly loved using the spray paint! Some students were very clever by using subtle tone or splatter techniques.
Other than focusing on the negative space, my students had to make sure the sculpture was interesting from all angles and cast beautiful shadows!
Once they finished, they then photographed their work, and wrote a letter to the student who created the art, using the LifeCard app.
Meanwhile, in China the students are showing us whose art they chose to turn into a sculpture. I love these photos, as we get more I’ll add them to this post.
We can’t wait to see their finished sculptures.
