Materials Needed – Calder Projects

I am so excited to embark on an art project with your kids over the next few weeks. We are doing a study on Alexander Calder and will be making our own circus out of found objects (junk) for our first project, just as Calder did when he first started! Then we will be making wire sculptures and mobiles. In order to make this happen, I have been scrounging to find materials. We still are missing some items. Can you help?

-Wire (any size, any type, any amount)
-Wire coat hangers
-Needle nose pliers (please put a name on tools so I can return)
-Most likely, more hot glue.

Thanks so much for your support. I happen to be teaching a science unit heavy on experiments at the same time I am teaching sculpture (also heavy on materials!) I won’t always be this needy…
