Calder-esque Sculptures, 3rd grade

Alexander Calder was a sculptor who often worked in the abstract style

He usually used the primary colors plus black and white

He made mobiles that moved and stabiles that stood still

We used recycled yarn cones for the bases of our sculptures

We decorated them with organic shapes made from foam sheets

We thought about places like outer space or under the sea when creating our abstract sculptures
