I will explain more details of the lesson plan after these sculptures are finished because it will make more sense to you, my readers, when you can see the students' art and can make connections to the skills I was teaching. In a few posts, you will see some of the amazing drawings, the posters that inspired the students and the resulting sculptures!
you ever had a cast before? Well, this stuff is exactly like that! To use it we dipped the strips in a tray of water. It can be messy, but most of the kids loved working on this step. It was important to overlap several pieces so that there would be no weak spots once it was dry.
