CASPER, Wyo. — The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles issued a challenge for people to recreate their favorite famous artworks using objects in their homes in late March.

With students continuing their education from home amid COVID-19 coronavirus in-building closures, Park Elementary School students in Casper have gotten in on the museum’s challenge.

“Park students were asked to participate in the Getty Museum challenge this week for an art project,” Park Elementary said on Facebook on Wednesday, April 22. “For this assignment they choose an artwork to recreate using materials found around their houses.”

“They have been so creative so far and we can’t wait to see more the rest of the week. If you have not turned yours in yet you have until Friday to do so into your art, music, P.E. and library google classroom.”

Park shared some photos of the students’ work and said they will continue to do so throughout the week. Photos the school shared on Wednesday are below:
