This installation art project is a fun introduction to sculpture and site-specific art. I teach this in my Introduction to Ceramics and Sculpture course. This lesson could be taught in art classes grades 4th-12th grade and beyond.
Students create life size human form sculptures using nothing but their bodies, scissors, and packaging tape. It is a group project, and requires at least two participants at all time to construct the sculpture.
This lesson pack includes:
-Lesson Plan with big idea, essential questions, national standards, step by step instructions, vocabulary, and supply list
My students love the chance to put artwork in the school in an unusual way. It really pushes them to think about the purpose of different spaces, and how they can highlight that through art.
