Join us for this family-friendly fun afternoon workshop! Start with a surface: wood, plexi-glass, or the motherboard from a computer. Add 2D materials like photos, newspapers and magazines, maps, bubble wrap and aluminum foil. Then take your pick from buckets of recycled 3D debris like computer parts, buttons, shells, and other small objects. Come out with a beautiful piece of art to hang on your wall! Easy as one, two, 3D.
Students will get to experiment with dynamic patterns and sculptural qualities of found objects, and become familiar with a variety of methods of combining materials.
- 3D: computer & printer parts, shells, toys, junk, buttons, jewelry, other debris and small objects.
- 2D: photos, papers, maps, cardboard, foam, bubble wrap, foil.
- Surfaces: various shaped bits of wood, motherboards, plexi glass.
- Tools and fixatives: scissors, mod-podge, wood glue, brushes.
