4th grade Dubuffet sculptures

4th graders looked at the art and life of Jean Dubuffet. He was interested in the artwork of children. He watched in wonder as untrained artists satisfied their urge to just create. He was called a "brut" or raw artist, as his work was rather primitive. He has a sculpture that most students had seen in downtown chicago. We created about five organic shapes, outlined them in marker and then chose only two colors for our sculptures to create unity. This was a new project this year, and I think the results are great!
