Arts: Playing and Experimenting with Recycled Materials

Students will investigate the work of Calder Kamin, who infuses her artistic practice with playfulness. After viewing the video and engaging in discussion, students will plan imaginative creatures using ideas of hybrids as a theme. Students will review why the artist uses recycled materials in her work. Then students will play and experiment with recycled materials to further visualize features for their creatures. Finally, students will consider presenting a surprise in the manner of display of their artworks in school.
