Cutting and removing the outside layer of paper to reveal the corrugated surface
Cut parallel slits in one side of a piece of cardboard to make it more flexible.
Cut slits and shapes into the cardboard in which other pieces of cardboard can fit.
Expectations & Requirements: I demonstrated.......
Was I able to develop solutions to any problems I came across? In other words, whenever I got stuck coming up with an idea, or working with a technique, or creating my composition, did I find a way to get myself unstuck and to move forward?
Did I use a variety of techniques while making my sculpture, and was I successful in using those techniques? The techniques you used might include: cutting cardboard with scissors or an exacto knife, gluing with Elmer's glue or the hot glue gun, cutting one layer of paper away from the cardboard to reveal the corrugated pattern underneath, cutting slits in the cardboard in order to make it more flexible to create tubes, cutting slits in the cardboard in which other pieces of cardboard would fit, layering pieces of cardboard together to create more voluminous or freestanding forms, removing layers of a piece of cardboard to make it more bendable.
Did I take risks with my cardboard sculpture? In other words, was I willing to try new techniques using the cardboard, was I willing to move any individual pieces that I created around to see if they looked better in other areas, was I willing to push myself past my comfort zone?
Did I create visual movement in my cardboard sculpture? Does my eye automatically travel around my sculpture as I look at it?
Did I create a sculpture-in-the-round? In other words, did I create a sculpture that looks visually appealing from several different angles?
Did I create a well-crafted sculpture? In other words, did I make my straight lines straight and my curved lines just as curved as I wanted them, did I make my tubes or boxes look like tubes and boxes, and did I put in the time and effort to make a sculpture that not only looks finished but looks finished by a professional artist with a concern for his or her craft?
Did I create a very clean and tidy sculpture? Did I invest the time and energy into making a sculpture with clean lines, without unsightly globs of glue or tears in the paper?
Create a sculpture that is larger than life size.
Create a prop or set piece for the school play: Guys & Dolls
