Here’s a sample of the incredible paper sculptures that third grade created! This was a multi-week project. Week one, students practiced various paper sculpture techniques with scrap paper. Week two, they began their final piece using construction paper.
I had seen this lesson with another art teacher and loved it so much I tried it last year and did again this year! They started their butterflies by making half a butterfly with paint and folding the paper so that they would be symmetrical! The following week, we completed them in oil pastel.
