Here are a couple of things we do at our school with plastercraft. =
Instead of plastering the kids heads and dealing with vasaline or =
papertowels, we have bought the plastic mask forms ( full face) from Sax =
A & C and we use these forms for both plastering and papermache. They =
can be built up to add horns, headresses, etc. ( personally I would love =
to use the inside of one of these masks -thats clean of course for a =
Jello mold! Wouldn't a Jello mold of a face be cool!) With these molds =
everyone can palster at the same time. We make Potowatomi Indian =
portraits that are later decorated and detailed - ties in with 3rd grade =
social studies unit. My 5th graders study modern artists, so the kids =
work with a partner to create a plaster hand in the style of George =
Segal. The hand incorporates everyday objects such as calculators, =
watches, pens, silverware etc. to focus on the Pop Art style of artwork. =
When plastering, the kids work with a partner - the "plasterer" and the =
"plasteree". The "plasteree" wears a latex glove to eliminate the need =
for vasaline. This lesson takes about 3 weeks and is an all time =
favorite for my 5th graders.
