Found Object Fabric Collage Art Exploration

Found Objects are objects that have some everyday function and not really meant for art. An object has meaning because of the context we use it in. What happens when we use it to create something else? Look out for everyday objects, objects with interesting textures that you can use to create a collage along with the items in the box.
Using Found Objects is an exercise in figuring out how to use materials of different kinds and textures! Through collage children can be helped to see beauty in ordinary things and to grow in resourcefulness by appreciating the possibilities of using simple materials for art expression. What will you make?
