Students will take a moment to breathe, center, and create temporary works of art from fresh and dried natural materials harvested from around their learning space. Alex will begin with guiding students through the best practices and steps in collecting flowers, leaves, sticks, and more in a safe and ethical way. They will then use these natural items to create a wide range of temporary artistic expressions ranging from mandala to self portrait and more. This module touches on visual art and science standards. In this lesson, students will learn how to safely and consciously collect organic materials for their collages.
