Fold/ crimp/ roll etc. paper into a simple shape. Make as many of these shapes as possible to then create a simple sculpture out of that shape.
You have a slightly different manic week. We will be reworking some of your pieces and photographs to make your older work even stronger!! You get to figure out the timings, but by the end of the week all of the following list should be complete and uploaded to your blog.
For your "wild Wednesday" for this week, you will create a found object sculpture wrapped with yarn. Find 5-10 objects and wrap them with yarn to create your sculpture. Perhaps do a series of more than one to display together.

Seth Apter is a guest artist for the show, "Make it Artsy" on PBS. Below is one of his art ideas which is a variation on this "Wild Wednesday" assignment. You may want to check it out!!
Choice #1: Use Clay
you could use clay to create the next sculpture OR...
Choice #2: Assemblage Sculpture
Assemblage is art that is made by assembling disparate elements – often everyday objects – scavenged by the artist or bought specially.
Take an object / Do something to it / Do something else to it. [Repeat.]
(Jasper Johns, sketchbook note, 1964)
Assemblage Doll head Sculpture
The assignment: use a doll's head and alter the rest to create a new-take on the doll sculpture.
For the next sustained investigation, you will use cardboard as your three dimensional sculpture medium. Cardboard is an excellent medium and SOOOO versatile. You will be able to create with it in so many ways. Below are ways that you can attach cardboard together and/or make it sculptural. Also, I am sharing the link to Darrell Wakelam's site. He is both an art teacher and an artist who specializes in sculpting using cardboard. Its amazing all the things he can do with this simple medium.
The art of Darrell Wakelam:
Wakelem has amazing artwork out of cardboard, but because he is also an art teacher, he has broken down his technique and make it kid-friendly. You could easily utilize his ideas and methods to create artwork that goes with your sustained investigation subject matter. check out his own artwork below:
Below are kid-friendly project downloads that he shares with elementary and middle school aged kiddos. I think they are a little formulaic for you guys, but you could see how he breaks it down and follow similar steps to create your own images.
Below is the pallet for AP 3D so that I can put items specifically for you guys. There are links to cool 3D websites, Sculpture ideas, how to videos, and even paper clay recipes.
3D students are special since they are on the same schedule as everyone else, but they are dealing with completely different media.
I'm putting together a padlet as a place to put resources and ideas that might be helpful for you throughout the year: https://padlet.com/juliedenison/2pe8ybjazc221f0r
Be sure to check it out and add to it if you find resources and ideas that you like and want to share.
Also, be sure to jump around on past blogs for more ideas on what you can do for your sustained investigation this year.
