Alexander Calder Sculpture Art

June 14, 2017


A great first step to creating sculptural masterpieces is by starting with paper sculpture. This demonstrates how to transform shapes from two dimensions into three with simple folds and tricks. We introduced our students to the great artist Alexander Calder, inventor of the mobile who also combined monumental forms through seemingly effortless balancing acts. Through using various folding and slotting techniques; students learn about form, combining geometric and organic shapes, and strengthening their fine motor skills through cutting. The students can then adapt their work into mobiles, stabiles, imagined landscapes and sculpture gardens. This introduction to sculpture opens up so many possibilities!


Nghệ thuật tạo hình - Alexander Calder


Một trong những cách đầu tiên tiếp xúc với nghệ thuật tạo hình, điêu khắc chính là bắt đầu với tạo hình với giấy. Gấp giấy và dung một số thủ thuật để biến giấy từ không gian hai chiều sang ba chiều. Chúng tôi giới thiệu đến các em cách mà nghệ sĩ Alexander Calder phát minh ra dàn treo kết hợp giữa nghệ thuật và việc cân bằng các mảnh giấy. Với bài tập này, các em sẽ tìm cách gấp, cắt, kết hợp các hình dáng căn bản của hình học để tạo thành dàn treo  sao cho giống với hình dung của mình là phong cảnh hoặc những khu vườn.
