Art For Families - June 8, 2021
Today's art activity for you to do at home:
On Tuesdays at 11am we go "live" on our YouTube and Facebook pages with art for #families.
Today we are going to combine 2D patterns drawings with 3-D paper craft to make some super interesting sculptures!
PATTERN: A regular repetition of lines, shapes, colours, or textures.
SHAPE: A two-dimensional figure in art.
FORM: A three-dimensional figure used in art.
Watch our YouTube for step-by-step demonstration!
You can download the instructions in a pdf format here.
What You Need: Polyhedron templates on cardstock, scissors, markers, glue.
Step 1. Cut the polyhedron shapes out of cardstock—make sure to keep the tabs!
Step 2. Using markers, draw patterns on the outside of your shape!
Step 3. Fold your polyhedron shape along all of the outside lines before gluing.
Step 4. Put glue on the rounded tabs and assemble! Repeat steps with more shapes if you want to make multiple.
