Rococo shoe scuptures

The third grade students learned about 18th century French, Rococo art, which is characterized by fancy materials and ornamental designs. The students learned about how women's fashion developed in France during this period, and they viewed photographs of Rococo shoes (currently housed in the Bata shoe museum). The students created a plan for making their own model of a Rococo shoe out of recycled materials. These shoes are created out of cardboard, paper mache, tempra paint, and various materials used for ornamentation. Every shoe turned out unique!

  1. Great Idea. I am working on my thematic unit for school and I am focusing it around the Rococo era . I really love this idea have you ever tried Rococo portraits?
