Alexander Calder

There is something magical about moving sculptures.  This month we are going to be studying the master of kinetic art, Alexander Calder.
Alexander Calder
1898-1976

Since this work is best seen in motion, I hope you will enjoy watching Calder playing with his circus sculptures in this fun video.
 

We are going to be making our own kinetic Christmas ornaments.  To complete this project, you will need the following supplies:

  • Crayons - minimum 8 color set, we recommend Prang *can be shared
  • Oil Pastels, 12 piece set, we recommend Pentel *can be shared
