*UPDATED - 1/22/15* This bundle contains:
- Arms Template (.pdf, .jpg, AND .psd file versions!)
- Head Template (.pdf, .jpg, AND .psd file versions!)
- Body Template (.pdf, .jpg, AND .psd file versions!)
- Project Example Photo (.jpg AND .pdf files)
There are three different templates included in this bundle to design, cut, and glue your own cube-like figure sculpture. One page is the head, one is the body, and the third page has two separate arm templates. Final assembled sculptures will be approximately 5" tall, 3" wide, and 3" deep.
When I taught this project, I used the templates with graphite paper and had students trace them onto colored construction paper to create the pieces. The template has tabs to indicate where the paper should be glued together. (You could also design directly on the printouts and then cut/glue the project together, but the quality is not as nice, in my opinion.)
Also included in this bundle is my a photo file of my example/sample projects (.jpg AND .pdf photo file), which you can use to show students design possibilities, or as your own reference for assembling the final sculptures.
This is a great simple paper sculpture project to use as part of a larger unit on sculpture or DIY vinyl art toys, or even as an introductory "self-portrait" lesson. Imagine a whole group of these figures on display in a case or on a bookshelf!
I am happy to answer questions or help you to use any of the resources in the "Make Art Be Happy" store - just let me know!
