Shadow Boxes Part 1

The Grade 5/6s have spent the term creating whimsical and evocative shadow boxes. The design brief was to create a shadow box which showed depth and portrayed a theme, for example an emotion like fear or happiness. Students spent some weeks designing and experimenting with different materials and then started transforming their design sketches into 3D artworks. Students expressed themselves through these artworks in a very powerful and meaningful way and I believe that anyone looking at these works would agree. This project also gave the students the opportunity to work with a variety of different media.

The photos below are some snap shots of their work so far. Some are still in the process stage, whilst others are finished pieces. I will take some more photos of the finished works in a few weeks time. Enjoy!
