I went along and collected quite a large quantity of "rubbish" or treasure as I called it!! I had my homeschool kids coming and thought it would be fantastic for them to create an artwork to enter.
Have a look and see what happened.
|This is a portion of some of the flotsam and jetsam. You should have seen the looks on the kids faces when I told them what we were going to do!!!! They couldn't quite believe we were going to use this rubbish to make something - priceless.|
|The more we worked the more they got into it and understood the concept.|
|We had to work out how we would put things together and how we could interpret each piece.|
|We had a pretty messy studio but what fun!!|
|Sneak snippets of what we were working on. I loved the thongs but no-one used them!! I might have to.|
|A "teaser" of a finished piece. Can't show you of course as it's going into the exhibition.|
|An another "teaser" pic.|
This was my entry from two years ago. Absolutely loved "playing" with the kids on this project - and now they have some awesome entried for the Kids Section of the exhibition. Can't wait to see everything finished.
