Wire portrait

Tomorrow I am continuing to teach wire sculpture to grades 7 and 8 at Kanata Montessori School. Students are going to create a self-portrait inspired by the work of Alexander Calder. They will also add two words en français representing them. Words are made of a continuous wire length.

Demain je continue à enseigner la sculpture en fil de fer aux 7ièmes et 8ièmes années à l’école Montessori de Kanata. Les élèves vont créer un autoportrait inspiré par les sculptures d’Alexander Calder. Ils ajouteront également deux mots qui les représentent. Chaque mot sera constitué d'une seule longueur de fil de fer.

Main de fer

I had such a great time teaching wire sculpture to grades 7 and 8 at Kanata Montessori school yesterday! This project was perfect for boys (and girls). Students enjoyed manipulating the wire with their hands and a pair of pliers.

Ce projet était parfait pour les garçons (et les filles). Les élèves ont aimé manipuler le fil avec leurs mains et une paire de pinces.

" Main de fer" by grades 7 and 8
