Seussical Inspired Sculptures

Term: 2 Year: 2020


Seussical Inspired Sculptures range from 15 cm height-15 cm width to 45 cm height -30 cm length/width

Seussical Inspired sculptures were made effectively using the following materials: sculpting wire, wire tools, Modroc, masking tape, newspaper, Vipond paints and embellishing materials. Also used were felt, feathers, joggle eyes and mosaic glass and ceramic tiles.

Students from Camelot Rise Primary School in Glen Waverley, excitedly and independently explored “25 of the most creative sculptures and statues from around the world” along with the City Of Melbournes’ installations (creative sculptures) using digital devices, in the form of iPads. Using their personal Visual Diaries, students got to work and each strategically designed their own small 2D wire shape which evolved and transformed into a 3D sculptural form. They were encouraged to link their design to a Seussical character thus linking to their school production.

Consideration was; it had to be free standing. Challenges where it had to have at least one moving part and be exposed wire for effect.

Students constructed a wire and paper armature of their sculpture design. Modroc was then applied to their finished armature models. Vi Pond paints were then applied to the models.
