Middle School Art: Wire Drawings

Students studied the life and work of American sculptor, Alexander Calder. They looked specifically at his "stabile" and wire sculptures.  Students used photographs as references for creating their own 3-D "drawings" made of wire.  Wire manipulation and connection techniques were taught and practiced.


  1. What type of wire and where best to purchase for many students? Love the inspiration! TY

  2. What type of clay was used to adhere the sculpture.
