Moving from 2D to 3D

OBJECTIVE: Students will create a two-dimensional drawing and a three- dimensional sculpture of the same subject.


  • 100-200 planks per student
  • Crayons or markers
  • Paper 


  1. Discuss the concept of two-dimensional and three-dimensional art. Provide students with examples of each.

  2. Tell the class that they will be choosing a subject, making a drawing of the subject and then building it out of planks. Discuss the advantages of the two-dimensional representation based on the medium involved (for example, color can be used; it can be realistic). Discuss the advantages of using KEVA planks to make a three- dimensional representation (for example: uniformity, precision, lightweight, fun).

  3. Tell the students to think about how they will create both the drawing and the sculpture before they begin. They may start with either project.

  4. Have students display their pictures beside their sculptures and conduct an art show for the entire class.
