Organic Form Sculptures
This sculpture will be based on organic forms and be tied in with the elements of 3D
design. The young artists will first create organic forms using reeds and masking tape.
These can be either 2 dimensional or 3 dimensional shapes/forms depending on the
artist’s ability. Using the glue and tissue paper the forms will then be covered adding
to the sculptural quality of the form. These pieces can be made to sit on a table or
hang in front of a window or some other space.
