I love doing ‘farts and crafts’ with my monkeys. I especially love thinking of creative ways to use material that we already have. We compost, so our ‘scraps’ are well used including our eggshells. I remember doing this project when I was little with my mother “Queen of Creativity ”.I have been saving eggshells since last week and rinse them until they don’t feel slimy, then leave them out to dry.
For my next attempt I will strive to create more vibrant colors.
1. First we made an outline
2. We sprinkled the crushed eggshells
3. Shook them off
4. Made buds (repeat)
Questions to consider while creating:
What materials (medium) are we using to create?
What texture does this medium create?
What sort of effect can you create with the raised and recessed areas? (Depth)
What types of art genres use recycled objects? (most commonly Assemblage but also Found Art, Junk Art and a fairly new term is Up-cycled Art)
What textures are used? (Intrinsic to the properties of metal, paper, plastic etc.)
