Paper mâché with Mrs. Emerson

    Mrs. Emerson’s 8th grade Art Foundations 1 classes used their creativity and artistic talents to create wonderful paper mâché sculptures. Classes were assigned well known Dr. Seuss characters and Alice in Wonderland characters. Students were instructed to practice ethical procedures. They did so by giving credit to original character artists in the titles of their completed works.

      The process for this project was rather extensive, taking several weeks to complete. Students first assembled armatures for their characters using recyclable materials. They used bottles, cereal boxes, egg cartons, newspapers, cardboard and various other materials to form the inner workings of their projects. They covered their forms with newspaper and paper mâché glue. The last step was to paint their completed sculptures.

      Students had to be inventive and creative in order to create a form similar to their assigned characters. They also had to be resourceful problem solvers in order to balance their paper maché sculptures and make them stand upright. The students displayed an excellent work ethic and perseverance while creating these outstanding paper mâché projects!
