My students always enjoy creating mixed-media projects. I love seeing the excitement in their eyes when they see the baskets with
the discarded material from previous projects. I recently added some corks I bought from our local The Scrap Exchange store.
We decided to create flowers using the different materials found in the mixed-media baskets.
This student preferred not to paint the clay pieces of her flower.
Having fun spreading the paint without getting our hands messy.
Creating the center of our flower by wrapping the plastic wrap into different shapes.
Student comment: "My petals look like ravioli. I had cheese ravioli last night."
Using corks to create the petals.
Student comment: "Look! I made a flower with hair."
Student comment: "I made a sunflower."
