For this piece it was a mini project that my class got to do. There was a visiting artist that came to our school Bryant Holsenbeck, who created pieces, such as animals, using recyclable materials. For this project I made a panda and in sculpture class I made a monkey. Ms.Holsenbeck demonstrated how to make one. She first used wire to make the basic structure of the piece. After that we stuffed our wire pieces with plastic bags. Then covered it with strips of cloth which were tied by string. The animals ended up looking good.
