During this interactive session, participants will explore making and responding to “found object art” projects. “Found object art” is a type of art made with ordinary objects found in the environment and not normally used to create art. Participants will be able to identify materials children can use to engage in the process of developing their own “found object art” projects. Participants will identify cross-curricular objectives as they explore three pertinent questions: 1) How does the school age child’s artwork demonstrate their thinking and understanding? 2) How can teachers encourage school-age children’s expressive and receptive language skills through visual arts? and 3) What is the difference between “art” and “craft” as it relates to school-age children’s creative works?

This course addresses the following age band(s):

  • School age (5-12 years)
