Wooden Collage Sculptures

My art elective this year is enjoying 3D sculpture projects. For this artwork, each student selected a wooden plaque and painted with the color of their choice with acrylics. Some students "antiqued" their color with a coat of black and wiped this off.

The fun part was adding various shapes and sizes of wooden pieces. We used wooden squares I had cut from large paint sticks.

The squares were painted different colors too. We added many embellishments like beads, shells, letters and glued them onto the background.

It was amazing how different each one turned out.

The last step was hammering small nails on the pieces for a decorative effect. We borrowed lots of hammers and got in trouble for all the noise we made. We had to move to the other side of the building for the second day we hammered.
Here are some finished pieces. These will be going to the Douglas County Art Show.
