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.

lamparas.

a third project that we completed was making lamps. we used reclaimed wood that we found tossed aside nearby, and made the lampshades out of twine. the electrical cord and bulb were purchased at a local hardware store. so easy and so fun to make!

quadritos.

another project we did in the environment group, was the dust/dirt that is in abundance here, and mixed it with a little water, and made cement/clay quadritos with a mochikan art symbol on it. just like how the ancient mochikans did their artwork.

as promised, here is an update on the bags made from catalogs. they probably took the average person 12-15 hours to finish, and took 2 1/2 weeks of our sessions to complete, but it happened!
