Second Grade students discussed the importance of recycling. We also learned how artists often recycled by using found objects in their work. We viewed examples of recycled art from around the world. Students then focused their attention on a few artists who used their recycled materials to create robots! Feeling inspired, each student then designed their own robot which we carefully painted. Students added highlights and shadow to give their creations a more realistic feel. Finally details were added with sharpie and colored pencils.
