What's your favorite circus animal? A tiger, a lion, a monkey in a leotard, or maybe a unicorn?
Little Artists, in this Mixed Media studio, learned how to make their favorite paper mache circus animal jumping through a hoop.
Using plaster the animals were shaped. Each of the animals had an armature made with pipe cleaners to support the plaster.
Next we painted the circus animals' physical details.
Then we designed the animals costumes; tutus, bow ties and capes. Fiery flames were an option for the hoops but many artists opted out of the flames :) Each animal had a very unique personality. The final hoop pictures are a bit blurry since the mobile was hard to keep still. We had horses, elephants, seals, rabbits and tigers!
See you at the Next Studio!
