A practical experience to build a 3D structure with the option to then paint/draw from the original construction used as a still life.
The art of construction offers opportunities for students to think three dimensionally—to experiment, investigate and to invent. Engaging in construction is a creative process that also offers the students opportunities to be inventive, imaginative and resourceful in the way they use new and recycled materials. By engaging in this project students will develop new ideas, find new ways of expression and develop their own techniques in handling different materials.
This construction project can be inspired by architecture – The Urban Landscape – by joining/gluing together a variety of timber pieces or cardboard in combination with craft paper, jute, sticks and other materials, assembled on a wooden or cardboard base.
