Dear Cindy Parsons,
I am a K-6 art teacher.#1- I would try clay RELIEFS-compared to reliefs on monuments and plastic & glass containers. Carve into for subtractive & add coils & balls for additive processes.This could be ceramic,
Plasticine,or salt &flour "bakers clay"/Play Dough etc.#3/4
Clay can be pressed into surfaces.Mold/cast/carve plaster
#5-Try styrofoam butcher trays pressed into with plastic
table ware & turpentine to eat it away for added perceptual
awareness.#6-Melt candle wax via flame, batik tympan dipper or whatever its called/ Hot glue gun /Elmers glue/
etc onto hard surface to draw in relief #7 Spread out thick
smooth coating of sheetrock/drywall compound with
trowell or putty knife so student can grasp drawing by scratching into drawing with dull pencil~ put compound in
squirt bottle. Bill Land Art Teacher Elkin Elementary 135 Old Virginia Rd Elkin N.C. 28621
