Silver Strand's 5th Grade Fish Mobiles

Silver Strand's Fifth Grade Fish Mobiles 

Inspired by Alexander Calder

American artist Alexander Calder changed the course of modern art by developing an innovative method of sculpting, bending, and twisting wire to create three-dimensional “drawings in space.”  He is known for “inventing” the mobile. 

Fifth grade students in Mrs. VanLandingham’s VAPA class created unique and beautiful Fish Mobiles.  Each student also completed an artist statement answering the following questions; What is the name of your artwork?, How did you create your artwork?, and What does this piece of art mean to you? 

The mobiles are currently on display in our school office.  Come by check them out!
