In their first three weeks of remote learning, Bernard Zell students tapped into their creativity as they assembled portraits of themselves and of famous people using ordinary household objects. They drew inspiration from the Israeli artist, Hanoch Piven, who is featured in Time Magazine among others, and claims that he was driven to find an alternative way to be an artist because he is not good at drawing.
The students also merged their Design Thinking skills with their artistic ability to construct sculptures, toys and arcade games from recycled materials they could collect at home. This project was inspired by the documentary, Caine’s Arcade, in which a 5th grader in LA builds an entire arcade out of cardboard boxes in his father’s auto-repair shop.
