Art With Mrs. French in 3-D, 7th/8th grades

Working in a brand-new medium is an interesting challenge, one our grade 8 students took on with this project. Using thick, light-weight alumium wire they created a square framework, then added embellishments. Beads and various types of thin silver and insulated copper wires were used to finish off the designs. Prior knowledge of line as an element of art, as well as the design principles of balance and variety were incorporated into their designs.
