The five 5th grade classes from Theiss Elementary have created artistic Copper Mandalas. The class lesson on the history of the Statue of Liberty included how the statue was made and the patination process of copper.
The students used 100% copper to create these mandalas. In doing so the learned the Repoussé process which involves manipulating the shape of metal. To do this, they needed to understand relief sculpture, as well as convex and concave shapes.
