Geometric Animal Sculptures

Inspiration: Claes Oldenburg's 'Geometric Mouse' sculpture.

To help them understand the difference between organic and geometric shape, these grade 7 students were asked to create a free standing cardboard sculpture of an animal of their choice using repetition of only one geometric shape. The decoration of their sculpture also needed to echo their chosen shape. This project really got them thinking and the results were amazing.


  1. These are wonderful! I love the use of recycled materials, and am crazy about the challenge to use only ONE geometric shape. Great unit!

  2. Hi, I just discovered your terrific blog. The animals are adorable and I absolutely LOVE the Willow plate lesson - I always loved the plates and can't wait till I have an opportunity to try this.
    I hope you'll visit my (newish) blog at http://plbrown.blogspot.com/ called There's a Dragon in my Art Room.

  3. Thanks Katie and Phyl:) I just had a look and started following your blog Phyl. I left you a comment about your teddy bear chairs!
