State Birds February 2, 2010

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 5:28 am

4th graders are constructing armatures for their paper mache bird sculptures.  Students have been inspired by John James Audubon to study a bird and how it can be recreated in art.  Every student has been assigned a state bird (plus a few other North American species).  They are just about done with the life size armature, or inside structure of a sculpture, and are ready to begin the paper mache-ing.

Below, the armatures for a loon, a sandpiper, and a seagull.
