3rd grader's are taking a tour of "The Smithsonian American Art Museum" - the subject is Found Object Art.
The Smithsonian has a lot of great "FREE" online tours. They also include teacher and student guides/lessons that are fantastic. Here's the link for the one on "Found Objects": http://americanart.si.edu/visit/about/
You can also check out their website and "ZOOM IN" on some of the found object art. My favorite is the one titled "Game Fish". Here's a picture of the art created by Larry Fuente and under the sculpture image is a section of the picture zoomed-in so you can see the things it is made from.
Pictures will be posted soon from out tour. The students are all EXCITED!!!
