Years ago one of my students gave me a book called Secret Garden:Photographers of the Imagination by Andre Villers. I forgot all about the book until I came across it when I was packing up my room. He is a photographer that made abstract cardboard people painted in bright colors. I showed these to my students to inspire them to use pieces of cardboard in a new way. (It seems that everyone wants 5 pieces to make a house.)Instead of using paint (paint center is not open yet!) they could get a similar effect with oil pastels. I love the fluorescent colors. First grader Gia made this cute doll.
