Kindergarten Nevelson Sculptures

Kindergarten experienced the art of sculpture making a la Louise Nevelson this year. What a great artist! The kids really enjoyed themselves and so did I. On day one, they glued an assortment of cardboard shapes, wood and other found objects (clothespins, paper clips, wood shapes, popsicle sticks, paper straws) to a piece of board measuring roughly 7x10. I gave them guidelines as we worked (start by gluing 3 cardboard shapes, now find 5 pieces made of wood, add 8 more pieces of your choice). It was awesome to see them arranging, stacking and balancing for the perfect composition. We used lots of white Elmer's glue-all straight from the bottles and totally went against the "dot, not a lot" rule :) On day two, we wiggled, glided and sneaked our brushes through all the nooks and crannies of the sculptures. Each class used a different secondary color - blue-green, yellow-green, red-violet and violet-blue.
