The 8th graders finished their trimester in art by creating relief sculptures. We bagan by looking at several examples of what artists today are doing with paper. To begin the brainstorming process, all of the kids sketched 4 different patterns to help them get ideas for their sculptures. The sculptures were built on scrap mat board and they used the collage table for the materials. The only requirement was that they had to have at least 3 levels. Several of them turned out really nice. I've posted a few of my favorites!
