Several weeks ago, environmental artist Bryant Holsenbeck visited our Art History class. We discussed various artists that use recycled materials to create art. She recommend we watch the movie Waste Land about the artist Vik Muniz, which we did.
Today, Bryant returned and worked with our class to recreate a work of art using recycled materials. The class chose Magritte's Son of Man as our image.They only had one day to complete this project. afterwards, the bottle caps were placed back in storage.
This was a test image to get a feel for it. In a few week's we are going to attempt a larger, more complex image. Stay tuned!!
