Finally, we are ready to start our final project! Using all our contour studies done so far (click here to see earlier blog), we decided to create our own contour sculpture, using wire. But – of course there is a twist! We aren’t creating one layer… but at least 3. (Stay tuned… it will make sense)
To get started, Grade 7 first had to create their own contour line drawings of their own portraits. Then using various thicknesses of wires, they outlined first the basic head shape and then added details. The wire proved very challenging – but the students made it look easy!
