Art camp day 2 does recyled sculptures in a big way!
First we looked at examples of sculptures from recyclables and other types then attacked the tables of supplies. The students saw possibilities in the slabs of styrofoam, cardboard tubes that held wrapping paper, bottle tops, packing corners and the ever popular metalic shred. Drink bottle were stuffed with shred, attached to plates and became hats. Foam packing from the library's computers became robots and one group created a work bench complete with tools. The most functional sculpture is a snow cannon that sprays styrofoam bits powered by the two guys who created it. Not to be overshadowed by styrofoam, the paper tubes became rafts, part of a volcano landscape and a head that had a beard then lost it.
