Packing Tape Sculpture?!

My students need 60 rolls of clear packing tape to create tape sculptures.

I am the art teacher in a rural elementary school, teaching students in grades 5K through fifth grade. I am constantly in search of new art projects for my students. Through Internet research, I recently found a lesson in which students create sculptures using clear packing tape. I would like to be able to incorporate this lesson with 4 5th grade classes. To create the sculptures, objects--even people--are wrapped with layers of clear packing tape. You begin by wrapping the tape around the object with the sticky side out. Once you have created this layer, you then turn the tape so that the non-sticky side is out. Several layers of tape are built up on the object to ensure the tape will hold the shape of the wrapped object. Once the layers are complete, scissors are used to cut the tape from the object and a piece of tape is placed over the cut. I would love for my 5th grade students to experience this project and discover a new way to create a three-dimensional object. Students will learn how a simple item such as tape can be used to create an artwork. Students will also look at and discuss examples of sculpture from various artists. The tape sculptures will be placed around our school once completed and also put on display during our district-wide spring art festival. Will you bring this new art form to my students? We will be very appreciative! Thank you for taking the time to read my proposal. I hope you will find it worthy of funding!
