Awhile ago we wrote about Cat Chiu Phillips who is creating art from plastic bags. Catherine is also an middle school teacher (7th and 8th graders) who is also incorporating Reusing into Art into her classes. These works of art are from a class and a lot of the materials are found objects and Beach Trash.
I love how they have displayed them on the wall together. Makes a statement. You do not need expensive materials to make art.
Most people just throw away scraps of wood. The make wonderful platforms for art.
Recognize some of these objects. The triangle is part of a broken beach shovel.
That #5 was picked off the beach along with the cork and bottle caps.
The red flag was part of a beach toy and the red, crown is a bubble blower from the beach. More corsk/
I will tell you what I love about this. Kids learning to be creative with found objects, not sitting in front of a Electronic babysitter (TV, games and digital devices). I am hoping that the kids enjoyed this exercise as much I do.
