Altered Art example

There was some interest in the idea of altered art. Here's a link to a
bingo card done by Maxine from the Altered Art list. I just love this piece
and the whole idea of altering everyday objects.

Wouldn't this make a wonderful art collage lesson? This could also be tied
into the idea of "Outsider Art." The recently discussed Wild Wheels video
is Outsider Art. I think this genre gives all kids the idea that many
things that don't hang in a frame or cost lots of money can be art.

Just my 2 cents worth!

caught every other fish.
