Moving Mobiles: Exploring the Element of Art, SPACE

The November Kid Quest explored the Element of Art Space. Participants had to think about how space can be in and around an object and how artists think about space when they are creating their artwork. Students came to the studio with a fun challenge of creating a mobile. We used colorful twisteez wire and model magic as our main components for this project. Students were able to create some fantastic sculptures that transformed into mobiles. I think part of the success with this project was the elimination of the tangly string. By using the wires, the kids were able to keep better control of their objects. The mobiles turned out fantastic and once again I was blown away by the creativity!
