My daughter Emily had a big project due recently in which she used "trash" to make art. I was in charge of photo documenting her at work and her final products. These are just a few of the things she made. The school used to send home colorful information flyers before they went "electronic"; Emily sorted the colors and made beautiful paper bowls.
This is Emily painting a sculpture she made from a graham cracker box and plastic grocery bags.
Here is the finished sculpture sitting on her desk. I like that the paintbrush she used to create "him" became part of the sculpture.
