This semester, students got to put on their invention caps and create their very own mechanical creature! But that isnt allthey had to deconstruct old junk first! Just like local artist Bill Swet, we took apart broken things and made cool creatures out of them. Broken bike gears and chains become the bones of a dragon, or the motherboard of an old computer becomes a funky hedgehog the world is at their fingertips, and they get to use found art and assemblage to make it all come together.

STEAMPUNK CREATURES
Students learned about value

Tom and Alicias 4th and 5th grade class

Lesson 1- Cyborgized: Students looked through magazines and found multiple biological and mechanical images that they can combine to create a new creature using the method called collage. Lesson 2 - Mind your Gauges: Students built a creature out of the deconstructed mechanical objects. Using tools and their imaginations they disassembled these items and re-assembled a new creature. Lesson 3 - Volted and Bolted: Students used their creature from Lesson 2 as their reference for creating a blueprint for that creature showing different perspectives.

Students learned about drawing by dividing up shapes

Students learned how to persevere and problem solve through building creatures

Alignment of Standards
Comprehend Lesson 1 Reflect Create

Enduring Understandings
-Artists compare/contrast ideas for inspiration to create art -Artists categorize ideas for inspiration to create art -Media properties are explored during the planning process to create successful work -Artists invent by using found objects and materials to make new works of art -Artists deconstruct then reconstruct ideas and materials to create something new that allows for interpretation

Lesson 2

Lesson 3

Students learned how to plan
