Help me give my students 12 gauge sculpture wire, Mod Podge adhesive, and metallic paints.
My students are representative of all grades, pathways, and programs at this school. Many of my students have never taken a specific art course outside of middle school art survey courses. I teach six high energy classes that are eager for hands on art making experiences that will allow them to apply the principles and concepts that are addressed.
The most exciting thing about my students is that they are regularly inspired by the students working in their immediate vicinity.
The dissemination of techniques and ideas is truly a sight to behold.
The materials selected for this project will allow my students the opportunity to create a three dimensional figurative sculpture that appears to be cast from a mold, but is actually created through traditional additive crafting methods. This is an exciting alternative, since mold making and metal casting processes are expensive, time consuming, and usually involve a degree of exposure to toxins.
After creating the figure's gesture with sculpting wire, students will cover the form with paper and sealer to set up the illusion of a metal sculpture form.
Next, students will cover the paper and wire with an opaque coat of black or brown paint. The finishing touch will be a lightly applied layer of metallic paint.
