Did you know? Cleaning up is an art too!

This sculpture is made with the scraps left over from student group visits

Materials for the Arts is grateful for our dedicated group of volunteers, who contribute almost 100 hours of work per week to our program. Volunteers assist with setting out donations, cleaning the warehouse, completing clerical work, and in our classrooms during student group visits. One volunteer, Sabu, is always here to help us clean up after students visit, and he finds inspiration in the scraps they leave behind. You may remember our previous post featuring 2-D improvised art from the recycling bin. Check out the amazing sculptures after the jump, they were created entirely with paper scraps that were headed to the recycling bin.

"Balance Sculpture" (2012) by Sabu. Cardstock, contact paper, and corks

"Ninja" (2012) by Sabu. Paper and glue
