An Art Attack

On Saturday I attended a workshop for educators run by the Canadian Wildlife Federation. We were introduced to a range of activities to help children become more aware of the environment and the way in which it works. One of the activities was to create a fish based on the characteristics we had been given on a card with the recycled material available. We let our imagination flow:

Once the art work and creativity had been admired, the items used were put back in the bins to be reused. What a fun way to teach children about the characteristics of fish. I would, of course, have to take many pictures before dismantling the art work 🙂

Doing the activity reminded me of a show my children loved to watch when they were younger: Art Attack. Here is a clip I found of one of the huge art attack’s that Neil Buchanan (the host) did on his show:

We always loved watching to see what he came up with.

Have you ever done an Art Attack?

  2. I’ve never seen nor heard of an Art Attack, Colline. It was really something. How creative! I can’t help but wonder, though, if somewhere a Dad came home to find his closet emptied and his clothes spread out somewhere. 🙂

  3. Interesting Colline. I have heard of ‘art attack’, but had no idea what it was really. Very creative. Your pic, as always, fantastic. Great composition with the art flowing out of the bottom of the pic!
