An exploration of artmaking with natural, sustainable materials
North River Arts Society
Summer Arts Camp
In the week long unit, students will learn to work with materials that are organic and/or recycled. Artmaking practices can be expensive and wasteful, which limits access to the arts for many people and also produces massive amounts of excess trash. Showing students at an early age how to avoid wasting money and materials when creating art will help them grow into more sustainability-focused adults. They will use various printmaking and papermaking techniques to explore these ideas.
