Lesson Plans

Re: Anyone have a "George Segal" Sculpture lesson?

Hi, fellow art educators! I am thinking about inspiring my 5th graders to
create a George Segel-style lifesize figure in plastercraft(the plaster
impregnated gauze that you wet, mold and that hardens as it dries). Once my
6th graders created an Egyptian Sarcofficus by covering a volunteer in the
class with plastercraft. The model was lying on his back, so the form was
only the front half of the model. I'm thinking about 2x4s and chicken wire
for this full-figure armature. Does anyone have any other ideas for a sturdy
and relatively easy to make lifesize armature? Any suggestions would be
appreciated! Thanks, Sue.
