for our fourth project, we made clocks from paper. the students brought their soaking paper to the museum. then we blended it and strained it and mixed it with glue to make it almost like clay.

One thought on “relojes de papel.

  1. So wonderful to see art projects that work with the materials already abundant in the area from the quadritos to the paper/clay clocks. How did the lamparas work out? They didn’t seem to provide much in the way of shade but maybe that’s my lack of imagination. Looking forwarding to more innovative art projects. Gracias por compartirlos.

yes. please.
