MS Art – Papier-Mâché Animal Heads – May 2014

In Middle School Art, students explored 3-D art through papier-mâché. They began by making 3-view (top, side and front view) drawings of an animal, mixed beast or imaginary creature of their choice. They followed that by using newspaper and masking tape to craft an armature for their beast. Next, they covered their sculpture with strips of newspaper coated in paste, and finished by applying a coat of paint. Some students opted to create a naturalistic looking creature, while others preferred a fantastical approach. This was a messy, but fun, project.
