Virtual Refrigerator: Corrugated Cardboard Art

Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! This weekly blog hop is co-hosted by A Glimpse of Our LifeAngels of HeartHomeschool Coffee Break, and Every Bed of Roses. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing the art that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges!
This week has been very busy and Kennady didn't get much chance to work on art. She has been using a brand new book from ARTistic Pursuits that we're reviewing - Construct. The unit she is working on is about working with cardboard.

 One of the first projects she did was a sort of collage using corrugated cardboard. First she had to draw a series of designs that overlapped shapes. Then she chose one of the designs and cut the pieces out of colored corrugated cardboard and glued it together.

It's abstractly interesting!
What does it look like to you? It reminds me of a bird, even though I know she wasn't necessarily trying to represent any particular object. 

We will be sharing our review of ARTistic Pursuits Construct at the end of this month, so be sure to check back and see what we thought!

We also have a new feature for the Virtual Refrigerator: a group Pinterest board. Come follow the board, and if you'd like to join us, just ask and one of the Fridge hosts can send you an invite. Continue to share your posts on the link-up each week, and on the Pinterest board!

You can grab the button above and add it to your post. Add your link here to share your child's art or your arts and crafts how-to posts. Please visit the other blogs and admire what's on their Virtual Refrigerators!
