ECMS advanced art students kicked off the first day of school with a creative challenge requiring them to use found items in their backpacks to design a portrait.
This collaborative process encouraged problem solving and teamwork while also helping to establish our classroom community. Students had only 15 minutes to plunder through their various school supplies and soon realized that art can be created from the most ordinary items when it is in the hands of those with imagination and perseverance.
After a gallery walk and artist reflection, students gathered up their temporary masterpieces with a greater appreciation for not only found art, but also newfound friends.
