Abstract sculpture inspired by nature

(0)
This sculpture project takes up 7-8 weeks to complete and therefore perfect as a half term project. It could be used for Key Stage 3 or IGCSE/GCSE students. It begins by using a common firsthand resource, fruit, as the design inspiration. A great project to be used to fill exhibition spaces as the work is large and creates impact. The process of abstraction is broken down into simple steps using line, form and space as the main elements. Excellent student work is used to explain each step of the process with completed examples included at the end. Choice starter activities are interspersed throughout for students to gain critical thinking and vocabulary skills. A marking scheme is included.
