After painting their creatures, the final step was a favorite of many. Using every elementary child’s favorite crafting tool, the hot glue gun, the K@P Kids glued an assortment of found objects to their sculptures to create interesting textures. Arts@302 is constantly accepting generous donations of bottle lids, buttons, and other odd items. These made for wonderful resources!
The sculptures were not the only feature of the Showcase. The K@P kids also worked on many aspects of the exhibit experience itself. Working with the staff, our students prepared the setup in an aesthetic way, added lights and glow in the dark features, and even composed some musical soundtracks to accompany the evening.
