Below you will find a more detailed list of what to create for the choice of sketchbook assignments due each Wednesday!
Choice #1: Repeating small shape sculpture
For this choice, you will pick a small object (like toothpicks, small paper shapes, plastic forks, bamboo sticks, thumbtacks, paper clips, pasta etc). you will need between 40 and 100 small items. (bonus points for those who go for 100 items!!). Create a sculpture out of these items. Use glue, wire, rubber bands, string, or any other methods to attach items together for your sculpture. (see below for samples)
Choice #2: Newspaper/Tape challenge
Take newspaper and create tubes by rolling it up and securing it with tape. Then create small geometric shapes. Then use these shapes to create a larger sculpture. Bonus points if you can get it to be as tall as you! Focus on a piece that is stable, looks good from all viewpoints, and accentuates the geometric aspects of the sculpture. (Tip: Triangles and pyramids are much more structurally sound than squares, rectangles, or cubes.)
Choice #3: TP roll Challenge
For this challenge, take a toilet paper roll, then bend, tear, crumple, cut, etc. to create a sculpture.
Choice #4: Cardboard Challenge
Use any of the joining techniques below to create a small cardboard sculpture!
Choice #5: Small Assemblage with yarn wrap
