Start by Making
Setting the Tone
I feel this activity really has allowed students to see themselves as a resource and to rely on their ability to work together in order to get things done.
I have a three year plan for these spheres before I consider the project complete. Last year we made medium sized ones and this year we made smaller ones that were tiered on each other. Next year, I plan to make LARGE ones that will hang in the middle of the installation. Then I will need to move onto something else, I suppose.
Here are some finished pieces before they were folded and made into spheres.
