Metal and Wire Assignment?
My budget for the entire school year for my classroom was $400. Since it is now Spring, I'm looking more at what materials I have the most of, rather than specific artists when teaching an assignment. We have a ton of that railroad wire left over from some art teacher who predates my working at the school. We've been making mobiles a-la-Calder. . .But, I saw these at the Cobb Galleria and think they have enormous potential as a future assignment. I'm thinking of making the students use glue and white tissue paper for the skin effect. It should dry very taut with some very cool results.
