Chihuly Paper Sculptures!

Fluorescent paper strips taped around a cut toilet paper tube. We drew on the strips with oil pastels before cutting inorder to give the sculptures more intrest and variety. We talked about how artists need the help of architects and engeniers to install large works of art, and Dale is one of those artists. He has many assistants. As the students worked I told them when they needed the mind of an engineer and when they needed the mind of an artist. Awesome results that have brought a lot of compliments to the art room! Perfect way to brighten up a hallway, and then almost look like holiday ornaments!
