3rd and 4th Grade Art
We began work on the background collage for the Faith Ringgold project. The students formulated a plan on what pattern they would create and glued fabric and patterned paper to create their work. They could create a border or fill in the entire background. The next phase of the project will be to build a bridge to place on the background. This will continue to strengthen the skills learned in the free form sculpture project and ties in to the boat constructions they are doing in Science. I believe I will open up different materials for the students to construct the bridge form with including string, wire and plastic, along with wood.
