Making Birds! Sculpture Ideas for Primary Schools
By Paula Briggs
These striking birds are easy to make and combine your drawing and making skills. Make one as a pet, or make a whole flock as a piece of sculpture! You could even make them a house to live in or a tree to perch in!
Which artists might we look at?
Cathy Miles makes wire sculptures adding found materials for colour and texture: http://cathymiles.blogspot.com/
Diana Beltran Herrera uses paper for her delicate model birds: http://www.dianabeltranherrera.com/birds.html
This is a great project for children as the actual technique is quite simple yet there's lots of room for experimentation and individuality.
