Wired butterflies


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Wednesday Afternoon Art Class students recently explored sculptural techniques as they created butterflies from non-traditional materials.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Beginning with craft wire (and the photographer’s finger in the way) students began to form the various shapes for the butterfly.

Students used a clothes pin as a base for the body as they employed flexi-sticks and wire together.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

There was a lot hand manipulating involved as students built their butterflies.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Focus and concentration were employed in the development of the small sculptures.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone was excited with the outcome of their first sculptural experience!
