Recycle – to put into service with changing

The goal of this class is to use art to inspire artist to recycle more and conserve natural resources.

Paintings and Assemblages on pre-existing Surfaces will be a class that celebrates the transcendent, innovative and experimental works of Art. We will work with paintings, Collages, assemblages, junk, dumpster trash, found objects, fashion, cardboard and anything else our society has deemed no longer useful.

Artists have the opportunity to create art using materials they gathered from, thrift stores, garage sales and found objects. We turn trash into art while keeping it out of our landfill. Throughout our exhibit, the community will find ways we can help keep our Earth a cleaner place to live and about sustainability.

Recycled art and design encourage creativity in others— it’s alchemical, magical, subversive, and transformative by nature. Through the use of these discarded materials, we attempt to not only recycle but also make a comment on our rampant “throw-away” society.
Participants will be working with paintings, assemblages, mosaics, found objects, cardboard and anything else our society has deemed no longer useful.
