Calder StabileAdvanced 3-D Art
Visual Arts Standards:2.1 Create original works of art of increasing complexity and skill in a variety of media that reflect their feelings and points of view. 2.2 Plan and create works of art that reflect complex ideas, such as distortion, color theory, arbitrary color, scale, expressive content, and real versus virtual.Artist of InspirationAlexander Calder
Born 1898, died 1976Best known for making sculpture move. Inventor of the mobile.
National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.4
Calders Non-moving Sculptures
Notice how his sculptures are flat planes that intersect one another.
Vocabulary:Kinetic art = art that has actual movement
Stabile = a freestanding kinetic sculpture (a standing mobile)Minimalism = Art that emphasizes extreme simplification of form; defined by use of basic shapes, limited color palettes, and anonymity of style.
Lesson Objectives:All students will exhibit mastery inCreating a 3-D form from 2 or more flat planesMaking sculpture moveCapturing the minimalist style of CalderMaterials:Mat board, paint, wire, glueProject Requirements:Overall sculpture is at least 12 tallBase and mobile pieces are painted At least 3 wire arms with at least 1 shape on each arm. Stabile has free movement (each arm must be balanced properly and assembled so arms do not crash into each other.)
