20 small fingers and 10 clever heads were working hard to make this beautiful statues. We talked about Giacometti and we tried various techniques for this project. Also the clay, if only to learn we don’t come third as high as Giacometti’s figures are. This surfers are made out of wire, which the children taped just to make a bit of a volume. Then they wrapped the taped wire bodies in plaster bandages. This part was fun and messy. We then fixed them on a wooden surfaces and they painted them with black ink. The colour on still wet base becomes nicely rustic. Children also made silhuets of their sculptures out of black paper. We left the sculptures to dry and voilà!
See the beautiful connections between the front and the background!!
I find them so sooo nice I just have to upload all of the photos!
