- Must be at least 3 ft tall or wide
- Must stand on its own (not taped to the floor or wall)
- Can only use packing tape, cardboard, saran wrap, paper, masking tape, tissue paper, or scrap mat board. They strictly could not use glue or paint.
- Some students added lights to their projects provided by me. I got the cheap fairy lights online for around $2 each and just bought dollar tree batteries. Very budget friendly!
- Include an artist statement about your work
A few students got a little frustrated with the limitations of the materials but most students really seemed to enjoy this project. It was enjoyable to see their plans change and critical thinking skills at work. Those that worked with a partner seemed extra successful. I used 36 rolls of packing tape, 18 rolls of saran wrap, and plenty of scrap cardboard and paper. It was a nice way to use up some scrap materials! We plan on keeping our installation up until winter break. After that, we will display some of them inside of our library, some kids want to take theirs home, and the rest will be recycled for next semesters sculptures.
