The first grade has been learning about geometric shapes, which have names. We will learn about another type of shape called organic. Organic shapes have no names and curvy sides. Organic shapes might remind you of other things, like leaves.
Artists, like Alexander Calder, use organic shapes to create artworks. Alexander used organic shapes to create very large, moving sculptures called mobiles. He also used straight and curvy lines, too!
We will use organic shapes and curvy lines to create moving sculptures like Alexander Calder.
