Forest Bird Play Dough Nests

Three dimensional media occupies space defined through the dimensions of height, weight and depth. It includes sculpture, installation and performance art, decorative art and product design.

Two processes are responsible for all three dimensional art: additive, in which material is built up to create form, and subtractive, where material is removed from an existing mass, such as a chunk of stone, wood, or clay.

The additive piece that we created involved a few key materials.

With flour, twigs, googly eyes, and pipe cleaners, we assembled them to create two items: a bird and his nest. Students modeled their nests in several different ways. They enjoyed making up stories about their birds and watching their friends.
