Art Room Fun
What We Worked on This Week
On Monday and Tuesday we used left over art materials and recycled materials to create beautiful collages. Some of our members really got into this activity! Our creative members used items from paper bags, to Styrofoam cups.
Wednesday and Thursday our activity was a little bit cleaner than our Monday and Tuesday activity. I named our activity "What's In A Name?" For this activity, I had the members find creative new ways to write the letters in their names. Some examples of the letters included an "A" made out of pencils, or a giraffe for an "h". We sure do have a creative bunch of students at the Boys and Girls club!
Artist of the Week!
What she created: Nashae created a very detailed collage when we made recycling collages. She used a multitude of supplies to create her collage, including tissue paper, paper bags, pipe cleaners, yarn, paint, old pencils and scraps of construction paper.

Special Message From Miss Hollie
I am so proud of how hard everyone has been working this week on your art projects. I enjoy watching you explore and learn from the art materials that are provided. My favorite thing is to watch your creativity come to life on a piece of paper.
Keep up the good work as we move on to using paints in the coming week.
