Community art projects

I love to do community art projects! When children work on the same project they learn to value others' ideas and perspectives, they have to share materials and work space, and they practice communicating with each other.  On top of all of these wonderful lessons, community art projects are also better for the classroom logistically.  You don't have to worry about having the same amount of materials for everyone, you can hang one large piece of finished art work instead of 20 little ones, and cubbies don't fill up with excessive amount of artwork to send home.  Plus they require far less drying space!

Here are some amazing ideas for community art projects, I'd be happy to work on these with my students!

I love that contact paper mural! What a fun way to explore texture and create a project that is ongoing, and really becomes a part of your room! I've got a ton of other art ideas pinned that you could probably turn into collaborative artwork with a little creativity.  You can check them out here!
