Class Experience

Students will focus on depth, texture, pattern, layering, and color in their sculptures.
As students work throughout the week, they may choose to work on their project outside of class. This is encouraged, but not required. 
The goal of this class is to encourage students to use recycled materials as their art medium. Cardboard found in everyday food packaging like cereal boxes, shoe boxes, or bathroom items (toothpaste box) will all work great for this project. I encourage parents to collect light weight cardboard (cereal boxes/ paper plates) which is strong, but easier to cut. Students will need a large variety of sizes and thicknesses of cardboard. Students will also need strong glue. Elmers liquid glue works fine, but craft glue also works well. Hot glue would work, but only with parent supervision. (This is not encouraged unless absolutely necessary.) Masking tape will be needed. 

Some students may choose to leave their sculpture unpainted. If so, no paint is required. If they want to paint their final project, acrylic or tempera paint is encouraged. Students will also need a variety of thickness of brushes for painting. A water vessel and pallet will also be needed. For the easiest cleanup, I encourage kids to use a plastic cup for water, and a paper plate for their pallet. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be given feedback during class to help in the building of their sculpture. 
4 hours 35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students may need help cutting some types of cardboard. Parents should always monitor their children while using scissors.
