One man's junk, says the proverb, is another man's treasure. In this class, we'll turn trash into treasure as we create works of art that adorn, inspire, or intrigue from throw-away or found objects. We'll start with some background on this emerging art form and a look at techniques for using post-consumer materials. Next we'll dive into our projects as we create one to two pieces that reflect our taste and vision; please bring objects that appeal to you to this class (some will be provided as well). In the last class we will polish our experiments and share them with one another to generate more ideas and approaches to transforming trash to treasure. Andrea holds a BFA in sculpture and an MFA in environmental sculpture. She has been creating art from post-consumer materials for more than a decade.
