Sculpting Fanciful Figures
Emeloff, Teresa
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v105 n1 p32-33 Sep 2005
In this article, the author, an art teacher at a Pennsylvanian high school, tells of methods she has used to help "open up" students in her Intermediate Studio Art class who are timid but talented individuals who will not risk embarrassment by expressing themselves. Her methods involved having students serve as models for sketches and creating armature sculpted figures using flower wire, newspaper, scraps of fabric, office supplies, and found objects. Making these "really cool artworks" taught the students to be unafraid of expressing themselves and enabled them to reflect upon and assess characteristics and merits of their work and the work of others.
