Art Class Description: 

This class will talk about Creative Reuse, and then end in a hands-on art activity! We’ll take a look at how to use unconventional and everyday objects as materials in art making, and then use the items in your space to make an artwork of your own. No previous experience required, only a desire to have fun in this engaging art lesson. 

Expand your understanding of this wonderful media, and connect to other artists on Earth Day!
