Art – “Tin” Snakes

Standard

We’re working on different cultures in the classes.  Right now, we’re south of the border.  The 3rd-5th grades made Mexican blankets, and the high schoolers made “tin” snakes.  These turned out really nice, and it only took a couple of classes, so it was a great kick-off project.

They started out by cutting the shape of a basic snake out of foam core.

Then, they cut out pieces of cardboard and glued them in whatever designs they liked.  The shapes just needed to be geometric.

Once the glue was dried, they covered their snakes in small pieces of aluminum foil.

They really liked this next part:  coloring the snake using colored Sharpies.
