Art materials from your house

For art class, Julie Jansen is in need of old house paint brushes, old brooms, old mops, buttons, "junk" jewelry, and bottle caps that can be transformed into artwork!  For the third grade recycling unit we will look at the outsider artist Mr. Imagination, along with many other artists who repurpose materials to create their artwork. Please make sure that the paint brushes, brooms, and mops are things that you can no longer use for their intended purpose so they are truly being repurposed.  I will leave boxes outside of the art room for these materials.  Please only bring in requested materials, or contact Julie at juliej@intlschool.org if you have something you think would be useful but it isn't on the list. Thank you!
