Joshua Allen Harris: 5th Grade

on fridays at our school, 2nd-5th grade come on a rotation, so we can't really do a steady project with them. we usually do one day things or play art games. this week, i decided that i wanted to do a short fun project with 5th grade. we watched a video on the artist Joshua Allen Harris (which is a great video, btw). then i talked to them about alternative art materials and gave each table a "trash kit" with paper and plastic bags, tp rolls, newspaper etc. then they got prompt words like "alien, monster, animal, food" etc.
they had a lot of fun and came up with some interesting things! no idea what to do with them now....
a person
bunny and flowers
2 girls making a dog
and a cheeseburger loving robot....
