Kindergarten Nevelson Sculptures
This lesson is one of my perennial favorites - found-object assemblages with Louise Nevelson. What a fun time Kindergartners had stacking, arranging and building their sculptures. The lesson does require a bit of prep for the teacher, but it's quite worthwhile. I put together trays of scrap cardboard pieces, woodsie shapes, popsicle sticks, clothespins (large and tiny found at the Dollar Tree), cardboard egg containers and itty bitty pencils that have been collected over time. The cardboard base for each child measured at around 8x11. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed! The final touch was the drippy gold tempera paint.......I think if Louise had walked into our classroom, she would have been proud!
