Calder Sculptures

Fourth grade artists have been exploring the sculptures of Alexander Calder – they loved seeing photos of his studio filled with bits of wire and junk!

Calder in his studio.

I gave my students a Calder Challenge for their sculptures:

1) their sculpture must have both moving (mobile) parts and non-moving (stabile) parts

2) their sculpture must have visual interest from every angle

The challenge was met – as you can see!

 Lots of good recycled junk to choose from!

Drawing our sculptures in our sketchbooks – translating what we see from 3D to 2D!

And some completed Calder-esque masterpieces….
