Here is a fun and easy-to-teach sculpture lesson that I created last marking period with my 6th graders. They had a lot of fun and success with this sculpture project! The variety of materials used to introduce them to multi-media art kept them engaged from start to finish. This sculpture can be made more complex or simple depending on the time, materials and the age of your students. When we created out sculptures, I introduced them to paper mache and tempera paint, texture variety and color mixing . We varnished the final sculptures with Mod Podge varnish. However, this project can be made without messy paste and paints as well. I have included 3 different methods to achieve this vibrant, metallic sculpture project making it a very versatile project for school, home-school or after-school club activity situations!
