We’ve had a fun month studying Rodin (despite my preference for paintings over sculpture.) I’ve been rather slow posting our projects, so here are two weeks worth of projects.
After studying The Hand of God and other hand sculptures, we completed 2-dimensional abstract hand drawings. The kids simply traced their hands and used at least two different mediums to create an abstract design. I love these!
You can see the Ivory soap sculpting we did as one of the projects during our Presidents unit in this post. I didn’t get a close-up of the sculptures because they weren’t great, but you can see the small squares of Ivory soap in the two overall project pictures. They didn’t turn out as quite the masterpieces that I’d hoped, but it was fun anyway!
To end the study, we pulled out some clay and tried a little sculpting.

Here are the resources that have been in the sidebar this month. I hope they’re helpful to you!
