Items needed

As an educator I am always looking for ways to use old unwanted materials in new innovative ways.  Think about one object or item you use everyday. Now imagine all the ways it can be used or transformed to create art.

This year in art we will explore how everyday objects can be transformed into works of art. Each grade will look at how reusing and recycling materials can create a cleaner, more beautiful world. If you have any of these items listed below and would like to donate them to our art room we would greatly appreciate it. I will be sending reminders home with students when certain materials are needed, as too limit the clutter in our beloved art room. Keep your eyes out for some of the many treasures listed below.Thank you!
