Wire-nylon stocking sculpture - a new twist
- Dear Educators,The wire/nylon hose sculpture project has been a big hit with students across the country (originally posted on the Getty list several years ago). Each teacher has done it a little differently - done their own thing with it. Bunki Kramer (Los Cerros Middle School Art , Danville, California) has just topped them all! Picasso Faces:Here is an online lesson plan:The more traditional way these were done:I did a bronze patina finish when I did them (layering brown-black-gold spray paint and highlighting with Rub 'n buff --We sprayed them outside).Here is a page for abstract sculpture:Here is a page for studying Picasso:Give this project a try - students in grades five thru 12 have loved it.Judy Decker
