After viewing the wire drawings of Alexander Calder, students were asked create 3D portraits of Mona Lisa. They were given a 6-inch piece of wire and began with the eyes and nose. Upon completion, they were rewarded with another 6-inch piece of wire, to extend into the face or hair. Some students extended their drawing out into space, to create a freestanding work. Others attempted profiles. Ages : Middle School, Youth, Adult. Supplemental Material : Alexander Calder's Circus (film), youtube.com
