SCULPTING - WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE
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.
LI: To use sculpture to develop and share ideas, experiences and imagination
Our key skills will be: to use a variety of natural, recycled and manufactured materials for sculpting, use a variety of techniques, e.g. rolling, cutting, pinching
Key Vocabulary: sculpture, model, work, work of art, 3D,, sculptor, sculpture, installation, shapes, materials
We are going to be creating our own Wild Thing out of toilet roll/kitchen roll. I would like you to create some designs first on paper. You may want to be inspired by Andy Warhol and create a stamp that you can use on your Wild Thing.
If you are creating a creature with wings they will need different shapes to a creature with arms, so think about what you could 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?
Use toilet roll or kitchen roll and paint to recreate your favourite characters from the story. To create the pointy ears, just fold in the tube from each side. Use extra cardboard to create accessories, like the crown shown above.
Record yourself telling a story with your Wild Thing about an adventure they go on.
