Magic Trash & Weekly Recyclable Art Project Club
Bring your trash and lets' make something cool! Each week students will be given a theme word and time to create their own art. We will then share our creations together. You will also "meet" a new recyclable artist each week.

Students will hear the story of various artists who are known for the art using recyclable materials and "trash". Students will discuss the idea of who gets to decide what is art and what materials are considered trash. After the story has been read, students will use the random items considered trash or recyclables from around the house to create a piece of art. The teacher will provide an inspiration word (Ex. Animal) for them to use as a shared theme in making their art. Items will then...
1. Students will learn about various artists using natural and recyclable materials. 2. Students will be asked a variety of questions about what people consider art vs trash. 3. Students will use their creativity to make their own art from items found around the house based on a weekly theme. 4. Students will practice public speaking by sharing their creations.
I currently teach this same class as a one time and have had lots of success. I encourage students to be creative and consider myself an artist using mixed media.
This list are some suggestions. Students may use various items found in nature and around the house. I would recommend students have about 5-6 items to work with, in addition to glue and/or tape, scissors, and a marker. Potential items could include; cotton balls, buttons, sticks, pebbles, rice, macaroni, corn, beans, newspapers, magazines, box, bottle, bottle tops, popsicle sticks, construction paper, paper clips, rubber bands, puzzle pieces, old birthday/greeting cards, leaves, flower petals, seeds, old sock/ fabric, feathers, googly eyes, old doll parts/broken toys, yarn, etc.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Final art creation and sharing.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Younger students may need assistance with scissors or fine/gross motor skills in general.
