Learn to create unusual art pieces using recycled, found and reuse materials.

Day 1 (4/5/20, 10:00am-2:00pm): In-class discussion of process, design and construction. This class will also include a guided visit to a thrift store and hardware store in Capitola to search for materials, suitable for creating student’s assemblage pieces.

I encourage you to bring your own materials. I will bring added materials for you to use for a material fee of $10. We will use electric drills, small saws, screws, wire and glue to construct.
