7th Graders are finishing a figure unit. We started by drawing the figure and learning about body proportions. Students focused on actions and the way the body moves and rotates. Next, we began our sculptures by making a “skeleton” with wire, then using newspaper and tape, we built up the body. Last, we paper mached the “skin”. Now, 7th graders are painting their figures.
