Joe, we teach a lesson on Calder here at the National Portrait Gallery, including an activity on his wire sculpture and mobiles. Email me and I will send you the lesson plan. Anyone else who is interested is welcome to email me as well.

Does anybody have anyweb sites or lessons for high school students on
making mobiles? I haven't done this in over 14 years, now we are
looking at having a contest at our school for students to create moblies
that will hang in the main stairwell. I have a video on A. Calder and
some books, but I was wondering if there was any other help out there.
Thanks in advance (I know some will help!)
