What is art?
Grand Rapids, Michigan is the site of the World’s Largest International Art Competition called “Art Prize.” http://www.artprize.org
Artists from all over the world share their vision of Art with the Grand Rapids Community. The art is found in venues around the city and on the streets of our downtown area. The art is in a variety of forms and made from every kind of material imaginable.
Here is the link to some Art Prize Creations from last year's 2nd graders.
One definition of Art, as found in the Merriam Webster Dictionary, is “Something that is created with imagination and skill and that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings.”
What is your definition of Art? What is Art to you?
Your task is to create ART! The materials, the design and theme are up to you and your interpretation of Art.
Create ART! Your art may be in any form, using any materials you would like. As an extra challenge we ask that you use recycled materials in your creation. Make sure you give your creation a title and be prepared to share a little about your creation when you bring it to school.
