Creative Character Sculptures

Grade 6

Linda Pfisterer,

Students collaboratively think of a character, either animal, human or make believe, that they would like in a story. Working with a partner, they creatively solve problems to make their character from "found" materials. Construction and embellishment make the characters come alive.

Objectives and assessment criteria

Students will:

  1. look, observe and discuss the sculptures that Picasso made from found objects.
  2. create a collaborative sculpture character that will stand and have necessary body parts.
  3. solve building problems as the sculpture develops.
  4. decorate or embellish the character with pattern and texture using many materials.
