Jamesville Bennetto Gallery
A lot of the kids’ trees didn’t really look like “traditional” trees.
a lot of colour was added to their trees, branch’s made out of popsicle sticks and pipe cleaners but there wasn’t a lot of kids that added foliage to the trees and if they did, the younger ones would make individual leaves for their trees out of construction paper and tissue paper and the older ones crumbled up the tissue paper or construction paper and stuck it on to their tubes.
An “aha” moment was when the kids used up all the tape in 10 minutes! Made me realize that they need proper instructions on how to use materials.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Scroll through this gallery to witness the diverse artworks children created.
Can you hear the stories behind each of them?
