This week in art camp the students were divided into two groups. The first group created collage compositions using paper and aluminum foil scraps. The second group learned how to reshape old vinyl records and turned them into bowls. We learned that recycling is like resurrecting an old item and giving it a new life.
For the reshaping of the records, we used the oven in our school.
We placed the vinyl record on a metallic bowl and watched the melting and shaping process.
Since students were not allowed in the kitchen area, each student watched the process
through the open door.
The students used acrylics to paint the reshaped records.
We had a great discussion on how there was a time when every household had a collection of
these whopping 12-inch vinyl discs.
For the collage compositions, some students used water colors to paint the foil, while others
used paper scraps.
