Tagli Cut Canvas
Grade Level: 3, 4, 6, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
A 3-D cut canvas pops when combined with rolled or folded paper shapes. Based on the work of Italian painter and sculptor Lucio Fontana, students combine 3-D paper forms and a canvas that's been cut through. In this way, the concepts of shape and form are easily visualized. The canvas moves into the realm of relief sculpture and can include several levels, from low or shallow relief to high relief.
