5th and 6th Grade Art

The students are well on their way working on the Icarus sculptures. They began with wooden figures and created wing structures to attach to the figure. They could chose any material for the "feathers" of the sculpture. Many students went the straight forward route and actually used feathers, but some used fabric or paper to create the feathers. The final step will be changing the appearance of the face and clothing to represent the Icarus myth. This has been an interesting structural and planning project and I am curious how the pieces will resolve.



  1. Love how this project ties into both Language Arts and World History! Looking forward to the end products!
