Junior Art Bird Sculptures

Over two terms the students in the Junior Art Extension class have been working on these wild, wacky and colourful bird sculptures. We started off by sketching and painting different exotic birds. Students then created papier-mâché bodies and the rocks using polystyrene balls and newspaper. They then used clay to create the beak, pompoms and googly eyes to make the eyes and pipe cleaners for the feet. Students also painted paper and used that to create feathers for their birds. This was a great project for students to experience working in a 3D medium with a variety of different mediums.
