Fifth Grade Head. :)

Fifth Grade Collaborative Sculpture

This mini unit began as an attempt to combine an introduction to bas-relief sculpture and conveying emotion through art.  Fifth Graders created these interesting faces using Model Magic.  The idea was to combine them creating a larger face showing the many emotions we all experience.  However, perhaps it was the instruction (start with the nose, push in the eyes, etc…), but MANY of the faces have a particular look that may have been better suited for a fall project…   In the end, the faces were added to the glass head (thanks for the inspiration, Mrs. Gallant) and the sculpture certainly begs for closer examination.  It makes me think of all the things spinning through our minds!  Enjoy!
