Calder’s “Olympics” January 5, 2010

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 5:24 am

Alexander Calder was an American sculptor, most known for his large mobiles; however, 5th graders have been influenced by Calder’s Circus, a kinetic sculpture of wire and found objects.  Click here for a link to view Calder operating his sculpture.  Each class has chosen an action-inspired theme…Ms. Jeram’s class is Winter Olympics and Ms. Bishop’s class is City Life.  Students are creating wire figures to be installed into a class display.  They are also collecting junk/found objects to use in their sculptures, so please donate any small junk objects if you have them!

Here are some sculptures from the Winter Olympics installation:
