5th grade Brancusi inspired Sculptures

5th grade students studied the life and artwork of modern artist, Brancusi. He is an exhibiting artist at the High Museum of art's Picasso to Warhol show. Students were encouraged to use repetition and balance to create a unique poster board sculpture. The students and I really talked about creativity during this project. How do artists achieve creativity? What inspires artists to be unique? What can YOU do for this project to make your sculpture special and different from others?

I think a lot of them stretched the possibilities on this one. I think they were pleased with their results!


  1. I love projects like these. great job. I did one similar called Paper Sculpture.

  2. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing blog that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. John Abery
