Paper relief sculptures and photography
Fifth and sixth graders experimented with creating three-dimensional sculptures out of our most basis two-dimensional material : white drawing paper. We discussed different ways to create paper relief and then artists experimented with applying these techniques to their sculptures. We set up a photography station, using an overhead projector to supply a bright spotlight. Students used iPads and basic photo editing to capture different views of their sculptures.
