I Love Bottle Cap Art!
I was so fortunate to work this year for Vibe of Portland, a music and art non-profit in Portland, Oregon. I enjoyed total freedom while creating my curriculum for elementary students. One of the lessons I came up with was creating bottle cap art. I discovered this medium while perusing the internet. Michelle Stitzlein is the artist I found that inspired me. The photo above is from one of her children's workshops and here is the link I initially found: http://www.artgrange.com/michelleworkshop.html
Eco-art is one of my favorite forms of art (art made from recycled materials). I love introducing this type of art to my students as it presents a great teaching moment for them to learn about the environment and the importance of recycling. My students have always been so receptive to this medium!
I will be posting pics soon of the work my students did. Gotta run now. Joseph is so excited to see one of his friends from school here in Cleveland.
