This Easter holiday we have been Thinking in Three Dimensions with artist Abigail Hunt.
Abigail showed the children a wide variety of sculptures and installations to give them inspiration.
They then brainstormed ideas of what they would like to make on a long piece of paper.
We then made a quick sculpture using just blu-tac and paperclips
These tiny sculptures were ingenious and beautiful.
We hung the wire drawings in the air.
The next activity involved joining triangular shapes together to make there dimensional objects.
We then joined together with a partner and morphed two structures together
And off they went!
They built big and small
Experimented with clay
And representational ones
We then worked on a quiet drawing activity. We had to ‘scale up’ a drawing of a found object and create a big image of something tiny.
We used magnifying glasses to help us look closely.
Our final activity was to create a sculpture from bricks, matchboxes and stones. We loved using the glue guns to stick things together. We will paint these tomorrow.
The children then designed a postcard invitation for our exhibition tomorrow – They can’t wait to show off their work!
