  • From Sketch to Three-Dimensional
Students learn the exciting process of taking an idea for a work of art and transforming it into a three-dimensional creation. Students first create a drawing to transpose and cut out of copper foil. They then manipulate the metal to create a three-dimensional object. The objects are linked into a larger mobile, creating a beautiful work of art that moves with the air currents and reflects light.
