Each week students will learn how to create a different up-cycled art project.

*Upcycled vision board collages using magazines images.
*Hand painted vases made from up-cycled bottles.
*“Stained Glass Flowers” made from plastic bottles

The initial flurry and doubt at the beginning of each class soon gave way to quiet, calm, concentration knew I had uncovered a simple creative way to de stress , almost like self-care. Students will be able to take their art project home with them the same day.
