This week we are continuing to look at Where the Wild Things Are. I would like us to complete an Art sculpture project. We will be learning as a whole school, so if you have a brother or sister at school you can do your projects together.
LI: To become proficient in sculpting techniques through creating my own Wild Thing.
Our key skill we will be learning this week is:
- Cut, make and combine shapes to create recognisable forms.
- Add materials to the sculpture to create detail.
I would like you to create a sculpture of your own wild thing or one of the Wild Thing characters that you have seen in the book! I would like you to think carefully about how you join materials together and what you use to do this. If you are creating a creature with wings, they will need different shapes to a creature with arms, so think about what material would be best to use.
There are some different ways in which you can create your Wild Thing sculpture. Using everyday materials, you will need to consider shape, detail and joining techniques. Are you going to use glue sticks, cellotape, or staples?
I have included some pictures below to give you some ideas about how you could construct your sculpture.
What will your creature look like?
Can you show me, or describe to me, an effective way that you joined two different materials together? Why did it work so well? What did you use?
