OK, everybody we need your help! Next weekend we are doing a community outreach event and need help with some supplies. Starting today, we will be collecting ALL SIZES OF CARDBOARD ROLLS so that we can recycle them and make arts & crafts with all the cool kids who want to get creative next weekend. So please do us a big favor and save your cardboard rolls and drop them off at our front desk between now and next Saturday!

Psycho - Cycled - Teaching students to find a way using found items to express creativity outside the typical sphere of thinking. Adaptations have produced countless new techniques, possibilities, and exquisite results. The intent is to view everyday items in the light of art and how to maximize what would, otherwise be “junk” by using various techniques in construction and finishing. Using what an artist has on hand will be a main theme throughout the session.
