In a recent project, I was sent by mail a mystery box full of art materials (wood blocks, glue, wire, clay, material, canvas board, etc). The instructions were to choose a famous painting and re-invent it in 3 dimension. The rules were that I could only use what was in the box (except for paints). It was a long fun process and I was challenged continually to solve problems to meet my goal by only using what was in the box. Here is what I came up with…step by step. It might be fun to put together a mystery art box for your kids and give them the assignment to make something from it as well…you never know what it might inspire!
