Wire Sculpture

Wasn't sure if I was up to teaching one more class this week but this wire sculpture class was a big hit! I think I had as much fun as the students.
This dancer was made by a Kindergartener! This project was for ages 8 and up but she came with her brother and shocked us all! I guess that Picasso was right when he said "All children are artist the problem how to remain one once he grows up."

I got the wood donated from a carpentry shop. The twisteez wire was ordered from Dick Blick and was a little expensive $35.00 in all but a extremely safe for children. Everyone left with a whimsical wire person mounted and a new way of looking at sculpture.
