02 Oct 2012 SCRAP Workshop for Kids: Elements in Motion w/ Green Art Workshop
In this workshop students will create an imaginative hanging sculpture based on the natural elements (earth, fire, water, and air). Students will explore the colors associated with their chosen element, what real or imagined creatures might inhabit this space, and consider what it would be like to experience this element with all five senses. Using found materials from SCRAP, they will construct a 3-dimensional mobile that reflects the essence of their element.
About Green Art Workshop
Elizabeth O’Connor and Susan Lynn Smith co-founded Green Art Workshop. It is a hands-on eco-conscious program that brings teaching artists into Bay Area classrooms and after school programs. In our classes, youth create imaginative personal and collaborative projects by re-envisioning everyday materials. We encourage critical thinking and heighten environmental awareness in the creative process.
