The results of this project are something between stained glass and cloisonné. In fact, you can study both as inspiration before you begin. Viewers will ponder how your students made the intricate 3D line designs and bold color combinations. The tin foil provides a beautiful overall sheen to the work while the marker allows for a quick and clean project. Display a number of these projects side by side and have a large-scale collaborative work in just a few days. See more beautiful results below!

    I’ve done something similar to this for ages. But I’ve found that, if they just use flat foil, it usually tears when they try to make it 3D. I have the students pinch a LARGER piece of foil to shrink it into a wrinkly piece, just a little bigger than their posterboard. That way the wrinkles provide stretching space to go vertically over the foil, not only enough to go horizontally over the posterboard. Since I deal with 5th & 6th graders, I draw a hill and a flat path to illustrate the extra space needed for vertical coverage. Middle schoolers could be reminded of the Pythagorean theorem. (Yes, math applies to Art!)
