Foil is a fast, fun, way to sculpt.
This vase of foil flowers was a gift from one of my Art Club kids.
A pair of brothers made action figures...
... with the super hero on the right wearing a cape.
And one artist made her whole family..
These are fun to display on a bulletin board. One year, each artist "donated" one of their people for me to staple to the board in action poses. I also sculpted letters in foil for the "Art Club" sign with the display. (It's fun to add dimension to displays- an unexpected change from the usual flat fair!)
It's not possible to remove them from the board without mooshing them, so they weren't returned to the students. I saved the cruppled sculptures to use for armature bits as we built our paper mache artworks.
(More on them soon!)
Make it a Wonderful Day!
