1.How big is the universe? Can you measure it?
2.How many shapes, colors, patterns, and textures can you think of?
3.Have you ever been in awe? What is the most spectacular thing you have ever seen?
•At least three pieces of paper or cardstock
•Glue, double-sided tape, or a stapler
•Coloring materials (crayons, markers, or colored pencils)
1. Use your coloring materials to create a different pattern—such as dots, lines, squiggles, and shapes—on each piece of paper. Make your patterns vibrant and colorful.
2. Cut straight and curved lines into each sheet while being careful not to cut the sheet entirely. You will need the sheets to be centrally intact to create your sculptures. Each cut sheet will make one sculpture.
3. Fold and bend the cut pieces inward to create negative space in between the loops. Secure the loops at connecting points of paper with your glue, tape, or stapler.
4. Arrange your three sculptures to stand against or atop one another. Secure the sculptures to each other at points of your choosing.
You now have one large collaged sculpture!
•Could I make this bigger?
•What are my limits here?
•What else could I create or add?
You could create and add more sculptures in different patterns or colors. Make your sculpture as big as possible! Add string. Add ribbons. Add whatever you would like and see how wide and tall you can make your sculpture grow.
