This week I blew the dust off my Usborne ART Treasury and we read about Alberto Giacometti and his sculpture called The Square on page 64-65. The thing I really love about this book is the art projects to do at home to help the topic come to life. We made pipe cleaner tin foil sculptures.
Sir N sculpted this tinfoil man out of pipe cleaners and tinfoil and my friend Mrs T sculpted the dog on the right. This project was a lot of fun and the thing we learned was you needed to make the feet fairly sizable in order for your sculptures to stand. The step by step instructions can be found on page 66 & 67 of The Usborne ART Treasury
