First graders are learning about 3-D art called sculpture, both in-the-round and relief sculpture, which is flat on the back and pops out on the front. We looked at these examples and compared the features:
We used yarn and foam scraps to make our raised surfaces, working with the heart theme since these will be finished just in time for Feb. 14! (I'm a big fan of Valentine's Day)
Next, we drizzled a little liquid glue over the cardboard and rubbed our foil VERY carefully - the more we rubbed, the more the shapes would pop out! After wrapping the extra foil around the back, we designed the color and line patterns with sharpies, emphasizing the 3-D part. I hope these will warm the hearts of many families in the next couple of weeks.
