3rd Graders explored the work of Naum Gabo and his role in the constructivist movement. During this time, artists wanted to focus on the materials they were using as well as started moving toward kinetic art (movement). There is a Naum Gabo sculpture just a few blocks away at the Chazen Art Museum on the UW campus.
After looking at some of his work & talking about his style of sculptures, students worked in a group at their table (4-6 students) and created a collaborative sculpture together. We created these sculptures right before Earth Day and focused on the idea of sustainability and reusing what we already had to create these sculptures (Cardboard rolls, box inserts, yarn, etc)
Once they were done, we spray painted them gold & white to resemble Gabo’s work.
They turned out great!
