4th Grade Collaborative Sculpture

inspired by the art of Isa Genzken

Even though they will always be Husky's, it's almost time for the 4th graders say goodbye to Hyer. Just like an old hat, a too small pair of shoes, or a once favorite toy - all good things must come to an end.

To commemorate our fourth graders' year in art we'd like to create a collaborative sculpture that celebrates their childhood.

Please send your 4th grader to school with an item from home that they have 'outgrown'. These items will be used to create a sculpture to be displayed at our May 5th fine arts night. I would like for the kids to think outside the box and bring something other than a clothing item. Some good ideas are an old shoe, an old toy, an old book, a piece of sports equipment, old play jewelry/accessories, an old hat, a used up art or make-up kit, computer cords and gadgets, etc.

Please don't send anything that you would like to save as a memento - the item should be something that you would toss in the trash or in a bag to go to goodwill. We will be nailing them to a structure, some things will even be painted, and they won't be returned.
