This week, 3D Art has been focusing on creating stabiles out of wood. First they did some research on the man who first created the stabiles. They found out how they were made, what they were made of, where they were placed. Next, they drew their own shapes, 15 geometric, 15 organic, and 15 shadows. From these shapes, they colored in their three favorite from each group. Then they redrew them onto bigger pieces of paper, cut them out, and began to shape them together, each stabile including three shapes. Out of the three stabiles created, they then picked their favorite one! They then were given a flat piece of wood and supplies they need, and were sent to work. From there, the students drew their designs on the piece of wood and began to saw them out. Once all the pieces are cut out, the students will sand them down, paint them, and connect them.
