Spent most of today pulping up recycled papers for the 7th grade art classes at Batesville Middle School. I’ll be spending the week with them starting Monday.
We’ll do two days of basketry using the twining technique and rattan reed. Then a day with recycled pulp – sheet formation. A day of paper sculpture over wire armatures (that they have ready to use). And the final day using cotton pulp pulling sheets and ‘drawing pictures’ with some of the colored recycled pulp that is left. Maybe even slip in some shaping over balloons.
Should be a fun week!
