Last week at art club I decided we would give making portraits out of wire a try.
This is my attempt. Don't laugh guys! It's tricky. I wasn't really going for a likeness anyway.
First I got the children to draw a picture of a face, then draw it again but only using one continuous line to make them think about how they would join the features to the rest of the face when working with wire.
I encouraged them to only use one long piece of wire but they found this a bit tricky so they used put together their wire faces in bits.
This 7 year old made his face with no help from me at all! Very impressed.
