Scrap Faces


 The 1st graders learned about recycled art and how to use unconventional materials in art.  We read 2 books by Hanoch Piven, which feature portraits made out of objects.  The children brought in objects from home that represented aspects of themselves and we assembled the parts into faces in art class.  I had three 8th grade volunteers who helped hot glue everything.  We used foam board and matboard for the base of the faces.   Scroll down to see more examples of the artwork!

I love Piven's work! And I'm amazed that your students actually remembered to bring things from home!

Thanks! We sent a note home and the kids all remembered. I also had a box of other stuff for the kids to use too.
