Using the book, Upcycling: Creating Beautiful Things with Stuff You Already Have by Danny Seo, students will experience 3-D art as they create pieces based on what they hear from poems, raps, and songs. They will explore the meaning that is being expressed in the literary works through random everyday objects. A variety of objects will be provided for the students to create sculptures while interpreting literary devices that will be spoken to them. Shel Silverstein’s “Homework Machine” and the accompanying illustration are a great example of how students can use their imagination to visually represent a fun poem.


This program will use upcycling to create art while experiencing the written word, combining multiple forms of art and expression.
