Earth Hour Inspiration
Saturday Mar. 24th, Art Explorers! Kids Workshop: 10:15 a.m. ‘til 11:45 a.m. – Upcycled Art. Inspired by Earth Hour which is happening next Saturday at 8:30 p.m., I’d like to talk to the kids about why it’s important to participate in it. I’d also like to touch on things we can do to help the planet in other ways as well. CD jewel cases are made with PVC plastic; non-biodegradable and non-recyclable in most communities. So during this workshop we’ll up-cycle unwanted jewel cases into art frames. It’s a great way to keep trash out of the landfill and proudly display our awesome creations! There are many different mediums that will work with these cases, but for this workshop we’ll be using homemade play-dough. A great supportive book to this exercise is authour Barbara Reid’s “Picture a Tree”. The talented Toronto-based artist creates all of her illustrations with plasticine, so we’ll use her style as reference for our pieces.
*Please note: Weekend Drop-in/Drop-offs now alternate between Saturdays and Sundays.
