Kite Handles for Wornick Jewish Day School Workshop

Above: kite handles

May is a busy month. I think many schools schedule their art programming towards the end of the year. I have a fun artist residency coming up on Wednesday atThe Wornick Jewish Day School in Foster City. I will be conducting kite making workshops. There will be about a hundred students participating.

I made a hundred kite handles from cardboard cereal boxes, tea boxes, and cracker boxes. I could have bought plastic kite handles, but making them reflects the way kites are made in most of the world...with recycled objects.

Emily and I added bits of Asian food wrappers to each kite handle to pretty them up and to illustrate that we can use mundane artifacts from our daily lives to make things.
