Ages 13 – adult
Tuesdays 12:00 – 1:00pm
This upcycling class is for anyone who wants to recycle everything, who wants to cut back on costs for home or gifts, or who wants to make more than just another art piece on the wall or the fridge. In this class we will take everyday items that often end up in the trash and give them a new life as art that also has practical applications in the home. This class is not just about transforming objects while in the classroom, but it is about developing the creative thinking skills to look at all the objects in our lives and transform them into other useful and wonderful things.
