Term 6 Week 1

We’re into the final term of the school year! Term 6 at Art Stars will focus on sculpture. We’ll be working with a variety of media including plaster, cardboard, clay, willow and wood to create some three dimensional masterpieces!

This week each class created a relief sculpture from card, inspired by the work of Frank Stella (see examples). We discussed his work, talking about the different colours, shapes and textures we could see. We cut shapes from card, adding interest to them using a variety of media. We played about with composition until we were happy with our pieces, and then we experimented with different ways in which to add a 3D element to our work.
