Hello all out there,
Does anyone have any experience doing lessons using paper sculpture
techniques? For my high school art foundations class I want to use paper
sculpture techniques (crimping, crumbling, twisting, scoring, folding etc.)
to re-interpret a great masters paintings. I want to teach them that paper
normally considered flat can be sculpural in so many ways, and get in some
art history. I was thinking of using the work of Monet, VanGogh, and Klimt
because their "looser" work lends itself well to wide interpretation in what
techniques the kids use to reinterpret the painting. Do you have any ideas
on other artists to use? Or if you think the kids would get frustrated trying
to do this and I should just teach them the techniques and let them create
their own landscape? Comments, feedback? I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks, Ruth in IL
