Kinder Line Paper Sculptures

What can lines create? Paintings, shapes, sculpture and beyond. First, the students learn when something is flat, like a painting or drawing, it is two-dimensional. What THEY WILL CREATE pops up from the paper and you can SEE ALL THE WAY AROUND, making it SCULPTURE!

Using straight line strips of paper and glue, the Kinders create their own one of a kind standing sculpture. They learn how to make shapes, spirals, arcs, and zig zag lines all using a flat, straight line paper. The possibilities are endless to this sculpture project, as students can build on existing shapes.

Their imagination grows as they continue to build off each line of paper and relate it to something they have seen or imagined. Some students created their own sculpture garden, imagining where a person climbs and wonders. The kindergarteners showed great excitement and focus in building their line paper sculptures! Following this project, students will move onto two-dimensional line drawings and paintings.
