Paper Mache 7th and 8th Grades
A new quarter began and the 7th and 8th grades first did some designing and making of clay cups with handles and then we plunged into making paper mache bowls. I hope they are having as much fun as I am. Another great group of students to work with!
Not a very complex process. The students ripped paper into strips and then drape them over a bowl form.
Here Korry and Brandon P. are working on their bowls.
Here are the strips ripped up and ready to be applied to the bowl.
Here is a shot of trimming the bowl before the edge is worked into a finished state.
Ripping and dipping paper and slowly a bowl will appear.
Another action shot, I believe this is Ms. Kelie C. working on her bowl.
Another action shot of bowls being assembled. Usually safety glasses are not required for paper mache, but this particular student was taking no chances!
I said I’d put this picture in, here it is!
More bowl assembly.
I believe this is Klaudia and Anna working on their bowls.
Sam works very carefully and his bowl is looking very tight.
John and Alex working on bowls.
Blanca and Caitlyn are doing a great job with their bowls.
Emma and Layla doing some final assembly.
the decorative headgear and safety glasses crack me up Nothing but great groups of students to work with this year.
