No-Kit
Grades 9 to 12

In your classroom

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Forget the fancy kit of art supplies: your students will be in love with art once they discover the possibilities that lie beyond markers and construction paper. From the Renaissance to our present moment, artists have long made use of everyday items to create art. Drawing from such examples, No-Kit encourages students to select materials from their surroundings to make playful works of art—including an all-red floor piece, self-portraits and a large-scale sculpture. An open space in your classroom—and an open mind to students' enthusiasm for repurposing their school materials—is all you need! Students will create and record their own instructions for transforming everyday items into works of art in handmade zines.
