Jean Dubuffet (31 July 1901 – 12 May 1985) was a French painter and sculptor.  He is perhaps best known for founding the art movement Art Brut, and for the collection of works—Collection de l’art brut—that this movement spawned. Dubuffet enjoyed a prolific art career, both in France and in America, and was featured in many exhibitions throughout his lifetime.  From 1962 he produced a series of works in which he limited himself to the colors red, white, black, and blue. Towards the end of the 1960s he turned increasingly to sculpture, producing works in polystyrene which he then painted with vinyl paint.

Students began working in groups.  Each group was responsible for a different part of the sculpture.

The fourth graders planned their part of the sculpture and began the process of creating their sculptural element.

Each group (and there are twelve groups in all) is making a different part of the sculptural figure.

Everyone worked with recycled materials and glue as the forth grades worked together to create the sculpture.

It’s exciting to see the students work together and prepare to paint in our next studio session.
