Art Idea: Clothing Design

Research and learn more about The ShelterSuit.

 

Can you design a pop-up emergency home? Similar to the Sheltersuit for people to use in case of a natural disaster or a war.

 

You might also like to design a piece of clothing that might help people in an emergency like a fire or flood? 

Art Idea: Business Design

Design a new way to have a business that can move around. 

 

For example if you had your own bakery, an ice cream shop or noodle business, how could you change your shop so that it goes to the people and so that people don’t have to come to you?

Draw or paint your ideas or design a 3D model using tinkercad.

 

Art Idea: Symbols of Equality

Look at a range of symbols from around the world. Can you understand what they represent?

Your task is to make up your own symbols that show equality. Draw and colour these in.

Display them in an unusual way like on the side of a recycle soft drink can, water bottle or umbrella!

Art Idea: 
Art Supply Inequality Challenge

In a lot of countries children don’t have access to lots of different art materials like paints, papers, pencils, hot glue, paper mache and markers.

 

Your challenge is to use common junk materials like plastic bottles, used clean chopsticks, pizza boxes etc. to make a moving car or a piece of art.

Check out these amazing examples from students in Mwanza, Tanzania.
