Chihuly Sculpture 4th Grade Carter Lawrence Elementary
In this lesson the 4th graders each made an element of the sculpture. They made these by covering plastic water bottles with aluminum foil and extending the bottles shape. They then covered their sculptural elements with colored tissue paper and glue. We built a frame work out of 2x4s and covered the vertical beam with a carpet tube. The students then decorated the tube with paint and we placed the sculptural elements on the "tree" using dowel rods. The students enjoyed this project and really enjoyed showing it off to the rest of the school.
