Mosaic Art and Paper Sculpture
Second grade students are currently hard at work on an Under the Sea themed cut paper project.
This project combines both mosaic and paper sculpture techniques with additional 2-D and 3-D elements.
The above students are carefully cutting out shapes and gluing them down to create a fish.
Some parts of the fish are glued flat to the white paper to create a mosaic.
Other pieces of paper are folded or curled with a pencil. This type of paper manipulation causes the fish to pop off the paper and create a fun 3-D element.
