Prep Paper Sculptures

Preps had a lot of fun making these paper sculptures. They explored and learnt how to do a few different paper techniques, including, fan folding, curling and fringing. Some of them had an idea in mind about what their sculpture was and others enjoyed just making it. The look fantastic and very colourful.

Prep Sculpture Fun

IMG_2549 IMG_2551

On an already exciting and interesting day, book week character dress up day 🙂 the Prep students from PD were very excited. It’s a joy to look out on all the characters I had in class today including several super heroes, princesses, a doctor, Harry Potter, dinosaurs fairies and many others.

We had just finished working with our buddy groups and were ready for art. We started off by cutting paper into strips some long and some short then we had a go at trying different folds, cuts and ways of attaching the strips to a cardboard base. Some students managed to twirl, curl, twist and fan fold their strips to create very unique sculptures.

Its an interesting process some of the preps find it hard to not make ‘anything in particular’ with many wanting it to be a vehicle, scene or character. Some really enjoyed just letting it evolve and develop in its own way.

I like this activity because it gives students the chance to try out some new skills and allows them to achieve at their own level no matter where they are in their learning.

It was a popular activity the Preps really enjoyed. 🙂
