I've got STUFF! Stuff I want my students to use to create art. Stuff I want to use up to make some shelve space in the art room.
Turns out that the foam pieces are thick enough to stand up on it's side.
I shared with students some photos off the internet of creative style birdhouses-and believe me there are plenty. Tea kettles, airplanes, animals...... It really sparked their imagination!
Trucks, dinosaur, dress, hamburger with a fork for a perch!
Students were excited to be making the birdhouses. They were hoping to make actual houses to hang up in their yards. Soooo I explained about making a prototype or a model of a birdhouse. I connected it to traveling salesmen 200 years ago. Do you think they would travel with a potbelly stove to sell or bring a prototype with them? As an craftsmen would you make a hundred of the same thing to sell or make one and take orders? Which is a better way to spend your time and money?
Have you tried Model Magic with your Students??
Thanks for reading!!
P.S. Who is planning on attending the National Conference in New York City next month?? I WILL be there, please say hello and introduce yourself!
