Sometimes I share ideas with my favorite art teacher at school (Mrs. S. Eleazer), and then she amazes me with the class interpretation. She surprised me last year with some, and one of her students even won a Scholastic Art contest award with their weeded book project.
She just runs with it!
Fast forward to this month–again, the Art Sculpting class took on a discarded weeded books project, repurposing these books into art. I am once again amazed at the work of my friend and art teacher’s class. So of course I want to share here. I have two sets; one set is the Christmas tree, and the other set is just book sculptures. So very beautiful and we are featuring them in the library once again!
So it is with pleasure that I share this year’s projects in two sets, one featuring a Christmas tree complete with “presents” made from recycled books, and then a second set of various items, including a dress, Rapunzel’s tower, and more! we plan to “dismantle” the tree after Christmas, and try it again next year–or sooner if we feel inspired. Enjoy.
Set one: A very Merry Christmas Tree!
Set two, just as special!!:
Last year’s projects, just in case you missed them:
