School as Studio: Children Learn Through the Language of Sculpture
Mrs. Bailey's kindergarten class will be taking a trip in December to Laumeier Sculpture Park. The class' interest in sculpture began after reading a sculptural alphabet book titled, 3-D ABC. Students began making sculptures in the classroom out of blocks, play dough, and light table materials. They noticed different sculptures around ECC, and decided to create sculptures for each other as birthday gifts. They are currently photographing sculptures to create a class alphabet book of their own. They are also interested in creating a large sculpture of some kind for the classroom, so they are heading to Laumeier for inspiration.
