4th Graders Make Food Sculptures out of Toilet Paper

Syracuse Academy of Science 4th Graders Make Sculptures out of Toiler Paper

Monday, January 6th, 2023: Syracuse Academy of Science 4th graders are making food sculptures out of toilet paper! The artists added color, details, and decorations to their masterpieces.

Sculpture teaches students to think beyond the flat 2nd dimension and bring real-life problem-solving into their artwork. Sculpting also aids in developing observational skills. Students will learn how to watch the world in full detail. They will be more considerate in looking at each part of an object. Besides learning sculpture, scholars will learn to picture the world more realistically.
