Student Work: Paper Bag Hats

This project is a fun one!
My 3D students start the year off with experimental assignments.
The goal is just to get them used to creating in three dimensions.
This is the second project of the year,
(the first is newspaper structures)
and helps them to think about form.

The paper bag hat project is based off an artist deemed Moses the Mad Hatter.
He created more than 250 paper bag hats!

My students had a full week to collaborate with another student on their hat design.
I prompted them to think about their hat's purpose and audience.
They were allowed to use cardboard, paper bags, any adhesive of their choice,
paint, tissue paper, and glitter.

At the end of the week, we had a runway show of their creations.
