Upcycling workshop at WIS

March 16, 2016

This week, I got to work with two lively and creative groups of middle schoolers at Washington International School.

We used recyclable “clean” trash to make collages, inspired in part by my beach find collages from last month. We used paper, plastic, and metal materials to create ecology- and recycling-related symbols as well as free-form collages with no glue or tape so that we could preserve them through photos and then deconstruct them and recycle the materials at the end of the day.

They came up with some wonderful ideas!  Here is sampling of their work!

Some of the most fun (for me) was seeing how their ideas evolved as they explored the material.
