This lesson focuses on a modern example of two types of sculpture: abstract sculpture and light sculpture. To complete this modern work of art, students look far back in history to the tradition of the Lantern Festival in China. They then turn that into inspiration for their own lantern, constructed using reeds and tissue paper.
In addition to creating their sculpture, students also participate in an in-progress critique. Once their sculptures are complete, they should participate in displaying them.
Included in this lesson plan are:
-Lesson Plan with big idea, essential questions, middle and high school national standards, step by step instructions, vocabulary, and supply list
-Paper Lantern PowerPoint
-In-progress Critique sheet
