4th Grade Goes Green with Recycled Newspaper Sculptures

In recognition of Earth Day 2011, 4th graders recycled newspaper into beautiful works of art. They learned about the local artist, Diane Sikes who transforms recycled books into magnificent sculptures. They also learned about the Senegalese artist, Mamadou Tall Diedhio, who makes bird sculptures out of old cell phones. 

After seeing the artworks of these two artists, fourth graders were excited about getting to work on their own projects. Below are a few snapshots from class. Be sure and stop by the glass case upstairs to see more examples of these sculptures!

    I love this recycled Newspaper sculpture project.

    I did a similar paper project this week teaching the students how to fold, bend and twist paper.
