Back to Recycling!

Just like last year, my Foundations of Studio Art classes are saving the planet with recycled art projects!

Here you can see what we have begun calling our “trash island”. It is an ever-growing pile of stuff that has potential as art supplies. However it kind of explodes each class, and has to be re-sorted at the end of each class period. Thank goodness for 80 minute class periods!20160224_125520

This time around we have expanded the number of attachment materials available to the girls. My classroom has recently gotten more basic tools, including an electric drill and a hand saw, as well as a sewing machine. This has opened up more possibilities for my students.

Here is my classroom at the end of a crazy whirlwind day of creating and making. You can see examples of Louise Nevelson, our inspiration for the day, on my television screen. I know you can’t tell much from our progress photos, but just wait! These recycled art sculptures are going to be amazing!
