Fourth Grade Animal Heads

Fourth graders are working on a papier mache sculpture project.  We were inspired by the work of artist AJ Fosik.  He uses wood to create really interesting relief pieces. 

 We are making animal heads out of recycled materials. 
Students chose an animal whose character traits resemble their own.

First, we sketched out a plan from the front and the side.  

Then we created a structure of recycled materials and masking tape.

Next, we are covering them with papier mache. 

Keep checking here for the next stage of this project!
