Ace Summer School - Recycling & Louise Nevelson

Lousie Nevelson was an American sculptor (1899-1988) known for her large, monochromatic (one color) wooden wall sculptures.  Nevelson used found objects for many of her sculptures.  So, we used found objects to create our Louis Nevelson sculptures.

The kids brought in some of their own found objects and added them to the class found object box.  After they chose their objects, they went to a "glue station" to glue their found objects into their box.  (People give me all kinds of stuff and a friend gave me these small black boxes.)

The kids love using the glue guns!  We gave them instructions on what to do if they burned themselves.  Luckily, no one got a blister.  

The last step is go outside to spray paint the boxes which the kids love doing also!
