Earlier today I posted How to Make a Paper Wave Sculpture – Exercise 1. It shows you the basics of making a Paper Sculpture…. specifically a paper wave sculpture. Well, in this post I’m going to show you how to make a Lampshade Paper Sculpture…. it’s the 2nd exercise in two showing you how to Paper Sculpt. It’s a little more complicated than the first, but if you did Exercise 1 you are ready for the challenge of Exercise 2. So, let’s get started.

If children have not had much experience with 3-dimensional work, you can introduce them to paper sculpture through “drawing” with strips of paper. This method can be the basis for developing an understanding of sculpture, or form in space. Since children are familiar with line drawing, the transition to drawing in space would be logical. Strips of construction paper, cut to one inch widths on the paper cutter, can be made in advance. Demonstrate how a strip can be a straight line, a curved line, or by folding the strip it can be a zig-zag line. Everyone can try it and see how many different kinds of lines they can make. A line can enclose space so that basic geometric shapes —triangles, circles and squares—can be formed. These outline shapes can be combined with scotch tape, paste, or with a stapler. What can we make with these shapes?
