“T-Shirt Transformations” Upcycled Art Camp For Kids – Week Three

Monday | June 08, 2020 | 10:00 am — 11:15 am

Online Event


Week four of Virtual Upcycled Art Camp for Kids engages housebound children in the concept up “upcycle” by creating hats, animal toys, capes, shirts or bags from old T-shirts. Scraps hidden in their home will complete their creation.

In each session students will be taught transferable skills and create their own UpCycled Maker Kit to use for future projects.

Artist and Environmental Educator, Nancy Judd and the Ecology Center are joining efforts to offer a series of arts-based, interactive virtual learning recycled projects for housebound kids. These classes are child-centered, immersive and interdisciplinary lessons that help children connect with their community and environmental issues while at home.

Nancy includes mindfulness exercises to help students learn to self-regulate in times of stress; movement breaks; standards based learning goals; and strategies to help children cope with stressful Covid-19 conditions (CDC recommendations). Nancy will interact with children as they work– answering questions, providing direction and giving encouragement.
