I've been pushing myself to create more 3D art projects this year. My 8th graders have spent the last 6 weeks working on these letters and they are wonderful! I encouraged them to design around the entire letter to entice the viewer to observe from all sides. I used papier-mache tape for the first time - it's like wallpaper where you have the gluey side and the non-gluey side. It worked great and there was a lot less clean up afterwards!
