heART Sculptures


We have finished up our blue dog inspired animals (post to come) and have started working on some works of heART! Students made heart shaped armatures with crumbled paper and masking tape



this student wanted to make an eye ball....when they get inspired you just have to go with it...she said the pupil will be a heart!


they added details with poster board



I was very impressed with how creative they got!!! Each one is so unique


Then we used plast'r craft to cover them


Next week we will use tempera paint to paint them, varnish them with Mod Podge gloss, and add details with gold paint pens!! I will post pics of the finished products next week!!!


 They dry very hard and solid in about an hour

  1. What grade level are these? I thought you'd be using papier-mache when I saw the first pictures. Fun idea to make heart sculptures!

  3. These are pretty cool! I'm not familiar with plaster craft but it looks like a better way to finish the armature rather than papier mache. Have you done this lesson with papier mache before?

    1. THANKS! I really don't like paper mache. Its too messy and it takes too long to dry. The kids were able to make the armature, AND cover with plaster craft in ONE 55 minute class period. It dries SO fast ans is very hard and durable.It actually starts to dry AS they are working but you can still add things to it the next class. It is the exact same stuff they put on your arm when you have to have a cast. The kids can cut it themselves easily with regular scissors and the clean up is quick.It leaves alot of dust but easily swept up. I LOVE it and so do they! I am going to buy another box to make animals!They really got creative with it

  4. Amazing paper heart sculptures. Used Paper should not be out as there are many ways to make them usable again just like the paper mache where it can be turned into different shapes.

  5. I love these! Very adorable and a great way to give the kids experience with something they most likely have never used before!

  6. keto-lit-bhb Lifestyle choices are contributing factors to poor health in many cases. These include smoking cigarettes, and can also include a poor diet, whether it is overeating or an overly constrictive diet. Inactivity can also contribute to health issues and also a lack of sleep, excessive alcohol consumption, and neglect of oral hygiene (Moffett2013).There are also genetic disorders that are inherited by the person and can vary in how much they affect the person and when they surface (Moffett, 2013).|The study took data from a list of excluded providers who were found to have committed fraud and abuse by the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services. The list is updated monthly and the providers are identified through audits or criminal investigations. The researchers linked the list of excluded providers to their Medicare fee-for-service patients from 2012-2015 and compared them to beneficiaries being treated by non-fraudulent health care providers during the same time period.|The pain hit one morning when Dr. Darria Long Gillespie tried to get out of bed. Her hands and feet were swollen and aching. At the time, she was in residency for emergency medicine at Yale. She had to see patients, but had trouble walking or standing for long periods of time. Long Gillespie was eventually diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis that would require biweekly injections of medication to control the symptoms. The moment marked a turning point in her life.|After more than 10 years of clinical work with patients, research and her own experience, Cabeca developed the Keto-Green diet, which combines keto—a plan that restricts carbohydrates stored in the body so the body is forced to burn fat for energy—and alkaline eating. As detailed in her book "The Hormone Fix," Cabeca focuses not on the hormones traditionally associated with menopause like estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, but on insulin, cortisol and oxytocin. When those control hormones are balanced, all the other hormones in the body fall in line, Cabeca said.
