6th graders make Butterfield Stick Sculptures student gallery #artsed #neolithic #handson

6th graders at Black Water Middle studied the work of Deborah Butterfield, well known Folk artist who makes horse sculptures out of found materials, scrap wood and metal. Students were also studying Hunters and Gatherers in Social Studies, so the art students focused on Cave paintings.

Students collaborated or individually came up with a design that resembled a horse as if they were neolithic people

 

Day 1 Students safely use tools to create two "A-frames" and then a spine to support their horse. The students had to cut their wood and make exact measurements
