Soon I'll be trying to teach my 7th &8th graders how to take a 2 dimensional
composition and realize it as a 3 dimensional structure. My plan is to start
by showing them one of Kasmir Malevich's paintings of simple geometric shapes.
Then, show them the same composition in 3D by turning the shapes into forms.
They will then follow suit with a composition of their choice using paper,
corrugate and/or matte board. Has anyone out there done a similar lesson to
help their students move from 2D to 3D? If so, will you please share your
experience with me. I want to capture my students' attention and prevent as
much frustration as possible. Any tips or other ideas you have on this
subject would be greatly appreciated.
