Glue and twine and balloons sculptureDrying in the heat

Balloon sculpture drying
So we dipped hemp and yarn into watered down glue and wrapped them around balloons......what a fun mess!

Sculpture is not all about 3-D. The students had to figure out some basic logistics such as How do you wrap a round object without the twine falling off? :-) It was a challenge for most of them! I had  them think of the "logitude" lines on a globe to make it easier.

 The same thinking applies towards popsicle  sticks and glue.....How do you make them stand? What geometric forms make them sturdier?  Now they are grasping that Sculptural Art is an all inclusive brain exercise in logistics!
