(1898 - 1976).
These wire sculptures were created by a group of grade 6 students a couple of years ago to celebrate the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008. We began this project by doing a lot of contour drawing using only one line to create drawings of Olympic athletes from photographs. We also looked at a lot of pictures of Alexander Calder's work. Each student then created a sculpture of a specific type of athlete using one long piece of wire (some used some smaller pieces of rainbow wire to add detail also). This was a difficult project but one of my favourites.
