Class Experience

1. Students will learn about Tyree Guyton
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.
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.
1. Questions and answers about the story
2. Final art product.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Younger students may need help with art project, in terms of fine & gross motor skills.
