Group art project ideas and detailed instructions

Teaching elementary art and fundraising for school art auctions has been some of the most gratifying work of my career. As fundraising became a critical part of keeping school programs alive, the journey began with the joy and challenge of working as a volunteer, creating group art projects to be auctioned at annual fundraising events. It was so satisfying to see my group projects generate thousands of dollars for the schools.

I hope these ideas or group art projects get you started on some collaborative artwork of your own!

The lack of environmental impact of using found materials and the process of seeking out materials to use is good from a financial point of view as well as taking it out of harms way. Group art projects encourage people to work together with a common goal which can be very rewarding experience.
