New Year’s Resolution? More Creative Reuse! (January Workshops at MFTA)

Learn to creatively reuse items from your recycling bins during an MFTA PD workshop

MFTA is pleased to offer three hands-on workshops in January. Each workshop includes an instructor-led demonstration as well studio time when participants gain experience working with items reclaimed from the recycling bin as well as objects found in the MFTA warehouse. Each participant will develop prototypes and project ideas suitable for their specific instructional setting–or just have fun making art with unconventional materials!

WORKSHOPS meet on Tuesdays from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm

SIGN UP for Musical Instruments and Wind Chimes Workshop, January 3, 2012

SIGN UP for Weaving and Fiber Art Workshop, January 17, 2012

SIGN UP for Mosaics and Murals Workshop, January 31, 2012

Making art is a great way to bridge cultural lines and bring students, families, and staff together. Participants in these workshops will learn how items from their recycling bins and supplies from MFTA can be used in engaging art activities.
