Craft Club- Texture Street Scene

Inspired by our Lost and Found box.
Lost & Found Box
The art club made their own texture studies.

This was a last minute idea of mine. I cut the flaps off of boxes from the recycling pile.
I  gave the kids some stuff to work with. It was mostly junk. I showed them how to peel back the layers on cardboard to reveal the texture. I also showed them how to make tabs so things would stick out. They came up with their own ideas and at times I helped by hot gluing things down.

Then I took everything home and gave it a coat of white primer spray paint.

I think this might have been their favorite project yet.

I love this idea Jane! I was inspired by your Lost & Found box and have been collecting "bits". I'm sure I'll do something with them some day. :)
