Welcome to our new school year in the art room!On the first day of school, we had a special art-making party called a Task Party. Artist Oliver Herring began the idea of a task party. It is a way to get people thinking creatively about how to solve a problem using random materials to complete a task.
Basically, it's a fun, collaborative way to think outside the box.
Students chose a task from our task bowl, brought it back to their table group, and either worked independently or as a group to complete the task using random materials that I provided.
Here were some of the tasks:
|Make a piece of fruit.|
|Build a city|
|Build a Flower|
