Get handy with form

Levels P-3

An introduction to form. Explore three-dimensional geometric and biomorphic shapes in sculpture, then experiment with plasticine to create your own 3D shapes to assemble abstract sculptures.

Learning objectives

  • Define the term ‘form’
  • Differentiate between ‘geometric’ and ‘biomorphic’ 3D shapes
  • Identify different ways artists have used 3D shapes in creating abstract sculptures
  • Apply and practise modelling techniques to create geometric and/or biomorphic shapes to create a makeshift sculptural piece
