Class / Workshop  |  Raid the Recycle Bin with artist Ani Hoover

Saturday, November 19, 2011, 1:30–4:30 pm

Join Art in Craft Media artist Ani Hoover to discover innovative ways to use everyday objects and “trash” to make beautiful artwork. Using common household recycled materials, kids will create three dimensional structures with intriguing textural surfaces. To get an idea of what amazing artistic possibilities a recycling bin can hold, visit Hoover’s website at: (be sure to check out her “RE-Works of Paper” and “Works from recycled materials”). Participants will reconfigure pieces of plastic, rubber, and cardboard using a variety of cool connectors like brads and zip-ties to create colorful and lively masterpieces. Take an object, cut it apart, and make a new project – become an official “Raider of the Recycling Bin”!

Cost: $32 for Burchfield Penney members; $48 for “not yet” members. Pre-registration required. Call 878-3216 or email
