Even a 5 year old can do paper mache!

I homeschool my granddaughter for art and we have been learning about sculpture. She wanted to make something for her other grandmom and choose a turtle. I was amazed on how well she made the armature, though I helped in the tearing of the tape. She used tinfoil covered with masking tape then did the paper strip and paste method. I didn’t think she could quite handle either of the clays yet….maybe next year! I also teach seniors paper mache and this one rivals theirs!

She did this in 4 lessons, one for armature, two for strips , one for painting. What was the best was to see her enthusiasm….it’s never too early to start the love of art!
