Giocometti Foil Sculptures
Fifth grade students observed the artwork of Alberto Giocometti and created sculptures with similar characteristics (elongated torso and limbs). The students' sculptures are based on gesture drawings drawn the previous week. This quick method of drawing is meant to capture the action of the person. Once the student created their sculpture it was glued to a base. The fifth grade artists had a great time making their sculptures....so much so that we will be creating a life size sculpture through the winter!
The idea for these sculptures was taken from a similar lesson on Mrs. Knight's Smartest Artists blog.
