insects crawling your way
My 6th grade artists have cleverly been creating insects from paper mache.
First the students built a newspaper and masking tape armature and then they built upon those materials with paper mache that hardened and made them stable sculptures.
The students then painted them in bright and bold colors that represented realistic and fun creepy crawlers.
Lastly, they added tissue paper, ribbon, felt, pipe cleaners, etc. to make these fun 6 and 8 legged friends come to life.
As our district wide art show fast approaches I am scooping up some of these great insects to display with the rest of the wonderful 3D work that my students have created!
They are crawling close to you soon so come and visit again soon for more information on the art show!
Be Well and Enjoy!
