This project made for some interesting teacher prep.
Soda cans were collected and I bagged them, put them between 2 pieces of plywood and ran them over 4 different times with a tractor.
One side was then spray painted to act as a primer.
After looking at different recycled art and art materials, the students studied the work of Didier Triglia and made their own can characters. They used sharpie markers and colored pencils on the can, and then spent time decorating their frames with other recycled materials! They turned out so, so awesome and the students really loved it because it was something very different than what they have done in art class before. It was well worth the work put in to make this project happen.
