Class Description:

This series of classes takes items headed to your recycle bin, garbage can, or just collecting dust and teaches you some new ways to turn those items into art! We encourage you to sign up for one, two, or all of the classes. Each month there will be a new recycled item to be turned into art. Besides transforming your items into art, we will also talk about some artists who have made a career of making art from recyclables. Start saving some of those recycled items for the class of your choice.
Sculpture from Recyclables
Bas relief, standing or hanging are all options for recycled sculpture. Repetition is a principle of design which will be applied. Begin saving multiples of clean throwaways —card board, wood, paper, bottle lids, plastic, metals, etc. Using one or more materials you will enjoy discovering the evolution of your sculpture.
