ArtCycleClass # 17 Grades: 2- 3
Do you love learning new ways to create cool artwork? Are you interested in discovering how you could find recycled art supplies in your own home? Mix your love of art with invention, and you’ve got ArtCycle. Art is one of the best ways to experience the world around us. In this class we will re-use and re-purpose everyday objects that we often overlook and combine them with some new art materials in order to create amazing artwork. We will be constructing castles, designing larger than life masks and building recycled robots (just to name a few). Get ready to get messy, have a ton of fun creating art and bring home a handful of original projects. ArtCycle has some incredible field trips planned! We will get to go on a scavenger art hunt in the park, travel to the ArtScraps Reuse Store for a special project, and visit the Highpoint Center for Printmaking! Get ready to create, invent, and make art!
