Junk art -- the tutorial 2

Here's the rest of what I told the fourth-graders about different ways to make junk art:

Fourth, choose objects with similar colors.

Word on the Street: Orange

Green on the Street 

Fifth, choose objects with similar shapes.

Paper Moons

Road Kill 2: Circles

Road Kill 3: Rectangles 

Sixth, make letters or words.


Street Runes (yes, it's words -- you just don't know the alphabet)

 I'll show you what the kids came up with tomorrow.


  1. I love these Kathy. I am glad you are showing them.
    I think Word on the Street: Orange and Road Kill 3: Rectangles are the ones I like best of these.
    Looking forward to the student artwork.

  2. This looks like so much fun! Are all of the examples you showed your work?

    1. Sharon -- yes, I wasn't clear on that. These are all things that I made for my two-person show in March. I'll show you the stuff the kids made later this week.
