      We held a "TASK" Party for the HOP CLUB (Helping Other People) students at our Elementary School. There were approximately 200, 4th and 5th grade students grouped together investigating and communicating, "What Can Make a Good Citizen ?" to "How many People Does It Take to Run a School?" ....They were using various art materials inside boxes to come up with a creative solution to their question.  What a great Opener for our HOP CLUB.....

      Hi, everyone!
      I am a high school art teacher and our school's National Art Honor Society sponsor.  We just had a TASK party to welcome our new members, and it was a blast!  We had about 20 students in the hall outside the art rooms doing everything from creating dresses out of toilet paper to making cardboard cows to duplicating famous paintings using people as props.  It was a great time!
      If any of you are looking for an activity to get kids interested in art, or to reward students, or as an icebreaker with a group of students who don't know each other, a TASK party is a great way to do it!
      We plan on showing footage and photos to the middle school students when we go talk to them about taking art in high school.  I'll try to post some pictures in the files of this group (if I'm allowed).
      Just wanted to share!
