We continued our study of Alexander Calder this past week with the construction of the wire portraits. The students had practiced the wire bending and joining techniques last week and enjoyed creating free form wire "sculptures" using aluminum wire. They created a wire outline in the shape of a head and began adding all the facial features. Eyes, nose and mouth placement were discussed and the various techniques learned last week came in handy for construction. They all enjoyed adding the colored wire and various details. This week we will begin the study of Eric Carle.
