Recycled Sculpture Challenge from 2009

7th graders are wrapping up their Recycled Sculpture Projects. Here are a few of the finished projects.

We learned about the different type of sculptures, ways to use glue and tape to hold things together, and all the different types of special scissors that can cut different materials. We looked at lots of recycled art from artists around the world. We collected items to create our works of art. and we worked in partners to complete our creative visions.

Here is our power point of inspiration and assignment guidelines. recycled art

  1. Nice work all around! Your powerpoint is gorgeous and makes me want to start gathering materials. I’ll bet the kids are having a ball with it.

  2. I am looking for help finding art projects for my 11 year old grandaughter. She is often home alone with Mom and Dad working different hours, and older sister involved at school. As a former music teacher, I understand the importance of art in the life of a child. This very special and bright child (of course I am her Grandma) lives half way across the country from me, so I can not be with her after school to help her with music or art activities. In fact, I believe there is a great need for after schoolers to find positive and appropriate activities when home alone. Television is not the answer. This Grandma would be happy to help you develop such a plan. i have a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Akron, in Akron Ohio. As an academic advisor for many years, many of my prospective educators were worried about their children who were home alone when they were at school. They could not find enough positive learning experiences for their kids to enjoy while having free time at home.

    Thank you for any help you can give me.
