Giacometti Figures - Lesson Plan Volume 75
The long, thin figures of Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) have become famous symbols of modern sculpture. Giacometti worked with volume, texture, and negative space to express a feeling of isolation in his work. A very limited color scheme adds to the solemn mood.
This project involves critical thinking and problem solving. Making the sculpture stand up on its own is not easy, and each student has to figure out the best way to prop their sculpture up as they work on it. The process of this project is additive, working from the bottom up.
