Art I students have been studying objects for sculpture, which means they must imagine objects from all angles – length, width, and depth. After completing contour drawings of flowers, Ms. Gillane's classes visualized their two-dimensional outlines in 3D. They learned techniques to construct the armature, the wire frame that – along with masking tape and foil – will become the base for the next step: papier-mâché. Their frames will be covered with a papier-mâché layer, and once dry, they will put the finishing touches on their floral creations by priming with gesso and finishing with several coats of acrylic paint.
