3 Dimensional Mask

Masks are used for many different purposes such as protection, as part of a costume, and for special celebrations. We are creating masks out of materials we have in our homes and might be normally thrown away. Materials such as cereal boxes, plastic containers, paper towel or toilet paper rolls and any other things that you may find around your home. Your mask may be a character that you know or you may just use your materials to build an interesting face. Please take a picture to turn in of you holding the mask up to your face! Your mask is due on Friday, October 23. I have attached the video we watched in class about different kids of masks so that you may watch it again if you would like.
Be creative and have fun building an interesting Artwork!

1. Gather your materials. You will need cardboard, scissors, glue or tape and whatever other materials you can find around your house to add to your mask.

Organic Salt Dough Sculpture in Google Classroom

Organic Salt Dough Sculpture

Organic means natural. You are going to create a sculpture using natural materials and shapes and forms that are found in nature. Organic sculptures may have rounded edges rather than straight, exact corners which are found in geometric shapes. You may be inspired to create something that you see in nature or you may create something that looks like it belongs in a natural environment. Here are the steps to creating your Organic sculpture.

1. Mix Salt dough in a large bowl using: 1/2 Cup of Salt, 1 Cup of flour and 3/4 Cup of water.
2. Knead your dough together until it is stiff and you can handle it well. If it is sticky you can add a little more flour to dry it out.
3. Model your sculpture into into an Organic form. You can use your hands as tools and you may also use kitchen utensils to help you cut or carve your sculpture. Your sculpture may have holes in it but it must be able to stand up on its own.
5. When you are done, put your sculpture somewhere safe to dry out for a couple of days.
6. Decide on a name for your sculpture and create a label for it.
6. Take a picture of your sculpture with the label and hand it in to my Art Google Classroom by Friday, October 15, 2020.

Geometric Paper Sculpture in Google Classroom

Geometric Paper Sculpture

For our second Sculpture this week we are using paper to fold and bend geometric forms like cylinders, cones, cubes, rectangular prisms and triangular prisms. I demonstrated how to do this in class with pieces of paper, tape and scissors. You do not need to put tops or bottoms on your forms but you may if you want to. To create your sculpture you need to make 6 forms and then tape them together so that they stand up by themselves. You should experiment with putting them together in different ways before you decide how you want your final sculpture to look. Take a look at some of the artwork I attached to this assignment to get some ideas!
Here are the steps to making your geometric paper sculpture...

1. Get paper, tape and scissors
2. Fold and bend your papers to create 6 Geometric forms like cylinders, cubes, rectangular prisms, triangular prisms and cones. You may have more than one of the same form as part of your sculpture. For example, you may use 2 cones or 3 cylinders.
3. Once you have made your 6 forms, play with them and decide how you want to tape them together in an interesting way so that the sculpture stands up by itself. You can tape the sculpture onto a piece of cardboard or paper so that it does not fall over.
4. Decide on a name or title for your sculpture and put it on a label next to your sculpture.
5. Take a picture of your geometric paper sculpture with the label next to it and turn it into my Art Google Classroom by Friday, October 16.

Have fun building your forms! I can't wait to see your creative sculptures!
