kids doing guerilla art
I did some Guerilla art with kids i teach during recess. I have a video of them doing it and me asking them about what they experienced when they found the art on the playground. Look at my post later for a link to the video.
I was with my student and I picked up some woodchips (cool long ones) and i noticed that you could build stuff with them. I showed my first grade guy how to do it and then he showed me some cool ways to make them connect to each other. Then other kids came by and it was great for my students social skills practice.
We left the structure we had built out on the playground. As we were going inside i wondered how other kids during the next recess would react to it.
We went to recess again that day and found a bunch of the third graders making structure with the woodchips. Thats when i told the kids about guerilla art and how it is cool to leave your art out in public for others to interact with it. They loved this! Then they told me the principal told them that they had to clean it up when they were done. The bell rang and i told them that they could keep one structure up.
The kids kept making these structures all week long. Teachers in the teacher room were even talking about it during their lunch. I told the teachers about guerilla art too and they thought it was great!
