Ecological artwork from Belgium

Our youngest pupils also worked on our ecological theme in their arts classes.
They had to make some sort of visual artwork using only ecological and recycled material to come to the understanding that in nature and even in our dustbin, there is plenty of natural material to make some simple yet beautiful creations.
The inspiration was the story of the American author and illustrator Erik Carle and his series The Very Hungry Caterpillar, in which he also uses trash to illustrate.
Our pupils used materials such as little flowers, hazelnuts, pages from old books, paper napkins, … Even the background cardboard was found in wastebins to be thrown away.
