Art in the Classroom: The idea of upcycling for primary school teachers

How do everyday materials become works of art? How does upcycling relate to the movements of Dadaism, Neorealism and Arte Povera? Are you familiar with the sculpted trophy of the César Awards? Out of what exhibit did John Lennon take a bite at a London exhibition? Since when have recyclable materials been exhibited at museums? And how does modern-day conceptual art peg a banana on a wall and turn it into a concept?

Students are invited to observe the objects around them and change their daily lives by getting to know the challenge of upcycling in the classroom! Taking on the role of hunters of objects, images, words and simple everyday materials, students create their own sculptures, poems, mock-ups, ephemeral artworks, in order to convey their own ideas and meanings within the classroom.
