Have fun recognizing, recycling, and creating with trash!
¤ Recycled Archaeology – June 14 – 18, 8 – 11:30 a.m. ¤
What can we do with all this trash? Recognize, recycle, and create! Students will learn to identify recyclables and use them to create works of art! Students will learn drawing and collage, as well as make sculptures of assembled recyclables.
¤ Trash Museum – June 21 – 25, 8 – 11:30 a.m. ¤
Using trash assemblages created in the Recycled Archaeology camp, students will make modular clay wall sculptures. The students will learn more about sculpture, recycling, and museum practices, and create labels for home recycling bins and their sculptures!
These EcoKids sculptures will be displayed with the students’ labels in the Schmidt Art Center from October 14 – December 11, 2010.
