Help me give my students the opportunity to take breathe life into their art by creating 3-D projects using a wide variety of materials such as Model Magic air dry clay, plaster gauze, and tooling foil.
As our students move through school, one of the biggest challenges they face is one of language. The majority of them come from homes where little or no English is spoken. Teachers, students, and parents alike often struggle to bridge the gap. Nevertheless, everyone is committed to overcoming those barriers and doing whatever it takes to achieve success. One tool that plays a vital role is the use of hands-on projects that go beyond the basics. Learning is Doing and Making!
By creating sculptures based on the work of famous artists such as Alexander Calder and Jean Dubuffet, my students will gain a richer understanding of, and appreciation for 3-D art.
While our students don't have access to a kiln, the availability of Model Magic clay will allow them to create pottery and other clay-like projects.
Students will also use these materials in order to create several multi-cultural projects for Hispanic Heritage month, such as foil sun engravings, pinatas, and Sugar Skull art.
These projects will increase dexterity while fostering creativity that extends beyond basic art materials, as well as enhancing their exposure to the wide variety of mediums which constitute the world of art.
