Hatton Art - recycled materials

The children were shown a permanent artwork on display at the gallery today - Merzbarn Wall by Kurt Schwitters, which is partially made from recycled materials and then they made their own art inspired by the piece and/or using various recycled materials. Having looked up the Merzbarn Wall at home we found it is considered a work of international significance and was the last piece created by the artist in 1947-48.

Harry used corrugated card and tissue to make his own version of a painting in the gallery called The Trees Fight Back, which showed cars being pursued by trees

He also made a 'fancy plate'

And a flower picture which he said is a present for me :-)

  1. What a great idea, another way to recycle but with Harry's imaginative flair & you get a lovely "made by little hands" present too as a bonus. x x
