Alexander Calder Wire Hearts

 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students looked at the life and artwork of Alexander Calder. Calder is a renowned American Sculptor known for his mobile sculptures. He also created 3D wire drawings, drawing with wire much like we draw with pencils or sharpies. We used 18ga wire, shaped it into a heart, then used pipe cleaners and beads to create the sculptures you see here. These examples come from 4R & 5M.
