Sculpture is another word for 3D art

It can be carved from stone or wood. Or it could be made of clay or bronze. It could be Realist in style, such as a statue, or it could be Abstract.

Check out all these different examples of sculpture:

Land Art

Sculpture can be permanent or temporary. Land Art is where people use natural objects found in the environment like stones, twigs or even snow to make sculptures. A famous British artist called Andy Goldsworthy makes Land Art.

Alternative Perspective

One interesting thing about sculpture is that you can look at it from lots of different angles and see something slightly different every time. Some artists make this a big feature of their work and you can only see it properly by standing in one place.

Artist Tom Deininger is an expert at doing this. Just look!

Aliens in your kitchen

It’s easy to make sculptures that look great, just using rubbish.

Assemblage means making sculptures from all sorts of different things stuck together. That means arranging things in ways that look pleasing – this is called Composition. We use Composition in painting and drawing too. Placing things in the wrong place on a canvas can make the art work look unbalanced and less pleasing.

Your Task

Using only items found in your kitchen, make an alien!

Now, don’t upset the folks at home by sticking things together with glue! All we’re doing today is arranging shapes. But if you were allowed to stick them together – you’d have made a sculpture.

Let your imagination go wild. Use tea spoons and the dog bowl. Use chopsticks and potatoes and muffin cases. Use tomato sauce and gravy as paints. Use anything. Just remember to tidy up afterwards, and don’t break anything.

You can even make your alien from food and eat it afterwards.
