Dancing Sculptures

Dancing Sculptures craft

Kids stay on their toes with their very own sculptures of dancing figures. They become more aware of motion, the human body, and dance as an art form.

  • 1.

    Look at pictures of works by artists such as Keith Haring, Alan C. Houser, George Segal, and Edward Degas to see how they show the fluid movement of people.

  • 2.

    Sculpt your dancer out of Crayola® Model Magic®. Use your fingers, a craft stick, or plastic knife or fork to shape the dough and add features and designs.

  • 3.

    Try joining two or more dancers together as in Haring's Three Dancing Figures or George Segal's The Dancers sculptures.

  • 4.

    Add color to your sculpture with Crayola® Washable Markers. Dry.
