I suggest that all students create one small project individually at least.
This gets parents wanting to come to the auction to get their students work.
If they do not come offer the work at a flat fee after the fact. If you
have left over work use it for school functions to decorate. I have done
large terrra cotta pots painted, glass vases painted with oil markers, batik
pillows, floor clothes and, furniture painted. It depends on class time
your willing to devote to the auction and your students level.

PLEASE HELP!! Ive waited much too long to ask , so now I am desperate. I
teach K-4 through 8th grade and we are having our first art auction in June.
I dont have any brilliant ideas for terrific group projects, and am missing
other student masterpieces as well . I had a lesson plan for Designer Cats,
which I have misplaced and one for Picasso, also misplaced and also from
Arts and Activities. My students are quite talented - I am not so I need
teacher friendly ideas. Thanks very much for whatever ideas you may offer.
