4th grade – Wisconsin Zoobilee Animals

A few weeks ago I posted about the 4th grader’s progress on their Wisconsin Art Zoobilee animals inspired by Vilas Zoo’s Zoobilee animal sculptures.  They started their sculptures by sketching their designs.  The Zoobilee artists were required to submit three sketches so we did three sketches as well.  After we picked our very favorites, we built our sculptures using aluminum foil and paper mached over the foil.  After it was paper mached, then we were able to paint and add our details onto our animals.  Here are a few examples of some finished animals.  Watch for them displayed around our hallways and library soon!!
