The Tower of Babel – a grade 5 art project

Grade 5 looked at Bruegel’s Tower of Babel and has started building a gigantic Tower  of Babel with cardboard. Each pupil has been given a cardboard box to make a house with it. They have been busy learning how to decorate it with Alix and Philippe, 2 artists from the art group Boite a Clous (cardboard/recycling art). They have already started to place their houses on a 2 meter diameter cardboard structure to create a huge city. The finished piece will be exhibited in the PAC foyer after the break.

We will post updates as we progress with the project!
