Paper Sculpture Techniques

In this video, facilitator Amy Traggianese shares lots of simple paper sculpture techniques that you can show students. They can use these techniques to create their own characters and paper sculptures. Some of the supplies are probably already in your classroom or school: heavyweight paper, drawing paper, construction paper and poster board. 

You can also collect some recyclable materials like box board from cereal or crackers- and corrugated boxes. There are many different ways to add simple details with construction paper, paint, collage materials – or students can simply draw on their creations with markers.

The simple paper sculpture techniques shared in this preview workshop include: folding, curling, twisting and scoring the paper.

This workshop is part of our Creating with Paper and Cardboard Pack in the Accelerator Professional Membership.
