Discarded but not Forgotten

Some of our Grade 3 and 4 students have been looking at the junk sculptures made by  artists such as Picasso and David Kemp. I found the bird pictured here in the junk materials box. It had been quickly put together and then discarded. I liked it and photographed it  along with a quick bottle head character I put together.There was very little work involved as the foam pieces had adhesive backing. I put forward the idea that many of our artworks can be put together quickly, discarded and seemingly fogotten but their making changes us for the better. Like play, opportunities to be creative enrich us.
