Subject: Louise Nevelson sculpture

>Last week (tomorrow is our last day in Montclair, NJ), my two fourth grade
>classes finished their Louise Nevelson sculptures. Each child made their
>own sculpture in a wooden crate (about large shoebox size) that clementines
>are sold in. I asked parents to send them in and received 100! They then
>glued in the wooden pieces that you can order from the catalogues. Each
>week they turned the box and glued them from the bottom. Then they glued
>all types of jewelry pieces, buckles, beads and stuff. I then had parents
>spray paint them gold or silver and I stacked them to make one huge modular
>sculpture similar to Louise Nevelson's work. It was beautiful. Next year
>I'll do them early in the year so we can display it all year. We displayed
>the large sculpture and then each student got to take home their own
>sculpture. Of course none of the other teachers had a clue who Louise
>Nevelson was, but they still were amazed at the work. I have some great
>photos of it. If any of you would like me to email them to you, just email
>me personally and let me know.
>I also did the hose/hanger sculpture that I learned about on this site,
>my fifth graders and they loved them. They also are quite beautiful.
