Trash to Treasure- Architecture of the India

Every art teacher loves to find an awesome piece of junk and make it into treasure. Well, well look at what 2 wandering art teachers found on their way to the office….


These heavy cardboard forms held chairs that were shipped to the middle school band room. So we dragged them to our rooms, and made buildings with added decorations inspired by India and Tibet.

2nd graders sponged painted the base color, then 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students added details and designs through out the day. I had to help of course and add the door.
