5th Grade art club Topography idea. Students begin drawing an organic shape on a large pc construction paper. Cut out - re-trace it on another piece copy the line only a little smaller. Keep up until pieces become small. Once all pieces are cut out - start to glue together put a small piece of styrofoam in between to show height. Place styrofoam above one another, easier to press down as built up.- created via http://pinthemall.net
This is a simple project, and a great introduction to the concept of positive and negative space for younger kids. Any project using their names is typically a guaranteed hit!! It is also a good way to really explore the shape of the letters.
