We will be making an original Wild Thing sculpture ... Here are some examples of Wild Thing Sculptures from other artists ... Mexican Brunido Pottery Cat The Only, Only Bird Alexander Calder, 1952

Calder created Contrast with a thick body and thin legs Calder created Unity by repeating colors and shapes. Charm Robert Hudson 1964 Mounted Knight William Accorsi Mexican Turtle Box The Mexican artist created

Unity by repeating colors and shapes. The Mexican artist created Contrast with a rounded body and straight edge box. The Generals Marisol 1961-62 This Mexican artist created Variety by decorating the monster with different sized

circles Mexican Oaxacan Monster This African African artist varied the Wood thickness of the lines to make his Carving: sculpture more Zebra interesting

Variety and Contrast Artists make their art work more exciting by adding Variety. They do this by using different colors, lines and shapes. Contrast is extreme variety and will make parts of an art work stand out. The eyes show contrast we notice them right away because they are Mexican larger than the Oaxacan other circles and Monster the colors dont appear in other

places on the sculpture In our Wild Thing Sculpture we will... Make our art work more exciting by adding Variety. We will use different colors, lines and shapes. We will also achieve unity by repeating some line shapes and colors. Our wild thing sculpture will also be a box in which you can hide things.

Art Project Title: Wild Thing Paper Sculpture Lay your Self Assessment Sheet next to your Wild Thing During this unit we studied the work of both illustrators and sculptors. We saw posters and book illustrations by the author and illustrator Maurice Sendak and observed how he used line color and texture to give his creations personality. We looked at sculpture by Calder, Marisol, Accorsi, and Hudson that uses a variety of materials. We discussed animal sculptures created by Mexican and African Folk artists. We learned how paper can be shaped into a three-dimensional sculpture using techniques such as folding, slotting, glue tabs, and curling. Using a variety of these techniques we created our own original "Wild Things" inspired by Sendaks characters that,"...roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws..." When the sculptures were decorated we discussed the use of texture, pattern, and color to enhance our designs. We also emphasized craftsmanship with careful folding,

cutting, coloring, and gluing. The following questions will help you discuss this sculpture with your child: What do illustrators do? How can you use their work in your art work? What kinds of lines did you use to make the eyes? the teeth? the claws? Is their anything you would like to add to your wild thing? What do you think is the best part of your wild thing? Which part of your wild thing would you like to improve? Can you make up a story about where your wild thing lives and what he eats or does for fun? Student Self Assessment 1.
