Art Club Bugs

5th Grade art club students created three-dimensional bugs as their first project. 

Step1 : They used balloons and warm or cool colored tissue paper to create the body form.  Once the bodies dried, they popped the balloons inside and added dots to the underside of the bug.

Step 2: Students used cloud clay (white model magic) to mold the head, stinger and beads (to be used on the wings later).  Again, they stuck with the warm or cool color pallet when painting their creations. 

Step 3, 4, & 5: Create the wings out of wire! Create crazy legs using art straws & wire! Finally, last but not least, glue everything together.  Check out their bugs below!
