Hey My Amazing Chatham Park Artists...I hope you are holding up well and staying healthy while we are all at home. I just want you to know I miss all of you, and the creative chaos of the Art Room. This week I am posting 10 Recycle Art Projects. Mr. Camacho, our Chatham Park student teacher, who is now working as a long term sub at Lynnewood Elementary School, created these lessons. I love the Illustrations that he created to do these lessons.
Below are more flexible learning opportunities for our students in grades 1-5. For the next 2 weeks (3/30 - 4/12) I thought a great theme would be "RECYCLING". Please use whatever supplies you have available at home and feel free to add or change lessons as needed. Students can complete lessons from other grade levels as well. Try to complete one lesson each week, and if you are feeling ambitious, feel free to do more! Be creative, and have fun! Feel free to submit any two lessons to me over the course of the next two weeks. They are broken down by grade level, but any of the lessons can work for any grade level.
I love all of the lessons I received so far. You have all done an amazing job and I am proud of your art work while at home. I also love getting pictures of you doing the project at home. I love seeing your faces!! I understand that not everybody has art materials at home. Hopefully, these lessons will be fun and doable for you at home. Take your time and do your best job!! Missing you all and hope to see you back at school sooner, rather than later!!
