1st graders learned about female sculptor Louise Nevelson. Said to be the first of the “green art”, Ms. Nevelson would scower New York City for wooden scraps to add to her sculptures, put them together, and paint them all the same color, for a new form of art called Assemblage.
The kiddos had so much fun using all the random craft materials I found in the room. They used pasta, rice, foam letters, beans, wooden sticks, whatever!
They glued all these materials onto the craft stick background they built and were instructed to fill it up!
Then they were glued onto a large piece of poster board and spray painted the same color.
Students and staff LOVED the results!
