Block out areas of the screen by cutting a stencil, or use a photo sensitive emulsion.

Lay screen mesh side down. Apply a line of screenprinting ink on top of the screen. Using a squeegee, drag paint across and through the screen's mesh.

Etched (metal plates only): Coat plate with an acid resistant etching ground. Carve design into plate using a sharp pointed etching tool. Sit plate in an acid bath to 'etch' into the exposed areas of the plate. Dry Point: Scratch design directly into plate with a sharp pointed etching tool. Engraving: Design is cut into the plate using a cutting tool or burin.

Activity

Activity

Using the artwork The Blue Horse (Franz Marc) as inspiration, students use the ‘slotting technique’ to create 3D animal head sculptures using recycled cardboard.

Taking inspiration from the work of Australian sculptor Robert Klippel, students start with a series of experimental design sketches to create their final balsa wood sculpture. Students focus on the elements of shape, colour, form, proportion and balance.

Activity Using the creatures of Jim Henson as inspiration, students create ‘Fabulous Funky Birds’ textile sculptures using recycled and found materials.

• Students discuss the materials and techniques they used to make artworks. • Students investigate different construction methods suited to making a free-standing ‘funky bird’ sculpture. • Students explore and experiment with different materials to resolve artworks.

Learning

Materials

Thinking

Cardboard, plaster, polystyrene balls, tubing, wire, felting, fabrics, acrylic and wool.

Apply mathematical and measuring skills to create symmetrical forms, design your animal head ensuring both sides are the same. Use PVA glue to secure.

• Students practice art making skills and experiment with the use of cardboard to create artworks. • Students take inspiration from Franz Marc as a basis for their own sculpture and consider how the use of cardboard influences the audience’s way of understanding the work.

Supporting teachers in creative education

Learning • Students discuss how Klippel applied and selected materials and used techniques to express themes, concepts and ideas. Students consider how they could use these in their own sculptures. • Students combine and adapt materials, techniques, technologies to convey ideas and resolve artworks. • Students use a range of strategies to conceive, design and make artworks.

Activity

Create Papier-Mache’ Ice Cream Sculptures.

Students create a sculptural artwork focusing on the theme, ‘Mythical Creatures’. Create a mini monument exploring this narrative.

• Students manipulate materials to build 3D forms • Students use masking tape to secure geometric shapes onto terracotta pots, before applying papiermache, sculptural assemblage techniques and hand painted finishes to make artworks. • Students investigates various construction techniques and spatial arrangements suited to creating ice cream sculptures.

Capabilities Incorporate Critical and Creative Thinking to investigate alternative making techniques to sculpt an ice cream; extend thinking and ideas.

Learning • Students practise hand modelling skills using aluminium foil armatures, Magiclay and sculptural assemblage techniques. • Students examine narratives around mythical creatures to inform decisions around size, shape and form. Students extend practical making skills by creating the creatures sculpturally.

Thinking Discuss the work of other sculptors, techniques and cultural practices. Connect activity to historical or geographical topics and explore other narratives.

Extension

Plaster Cast & Langridge Rust Sculptures Levels 7 – 9 Vic Curriculum Explore and Respond (VCAVAE041) Explore how artists manipulate materials, techniques, technologies and processes to develop and express their intentions in art work.

NSW Curriculum Making (VA5.1) Develops range and autonomy in selecting and applying visual arts conventions and procedures to make artworks. Activity Explore the abstract forms of sculpture by artists such as Henry Moore, Clement Meadmore and Barbara Hepworth and how these artists have used different materials and symbols to express cultural identity. Create your own abstract sculpture based on these influences.

Learning • Students experiment with and manipulate sculptural materials. Students explore the process of submerging balloons and other common objects in a container filled with liquid plaster; when set, they remove the objects then sand and paint to create expressive forms.

Capabilities Integrate the Intercultural Capability by investigating how Moore’s intercultural experience influenced his personal beliefs and artwork.

Experiment with using modelling foam, feathers, joggle eyes, florist wire and paint to further resolve the sculptures.
