Trash to Treasure

Dates
Display dates: 
September 2017 - November 2017

Trash Art Mondays, new this Fall Semester, will offer students the opportunity to create art by reusing ordinary materials that they encounter on a daily basis. Students will interact with everyday items to create attractive and maybe even useful craft items; the possibilities are endless. Materials will include plastic water bottles, trash bags, cardboard scraps, wood scraps, and fun creative supplies. We will have sample projects to spark ideas or students can free-style their work and create something completely unique.
