Art Fun with Platonic Solids
Let’s have some fun and learn about platonic solids.
You can enjoy this lesson in any order. Look at the videos below and I dare you to make at least one kind of platonic solid by the end of the week. Maybe make a cube and then a tetrahedron. See which forms feels more sturdy. Ask yourself WHY?
My platonic solid of the moment is an icosahedron. See it below. The last video is a slideshow movie that’s full of information about P-solids. Be sure to watch that before you’re through.
What can I use to make my P-solids?
I like bamboo skewers and use hot glue to make connections. You can also use sticks, rolled up paper, q-tips work great too as seen in this video below:
Next watch me and some friends build a 9 foot tall icosahedron!
Here’s the slideshow I promised. Please be sure to watch it and if you have time watch the video on Tomas Saraceno and his cloud cities!
