love this lesson idea - Students in 8th grade looked at the work of sculptor Isamu Noguchi and created a subtractive abstract sculpture that represents an emotion. Focus was on creating a sense of movement by manipulating form, and expressing an emotion through the use of color. We started with 3" x 3" x 8" blocks of dense styrofoam, carved with exacto knives. After they were smoothed out, we primed them with gesso and used acrylics to paint them.
