Don’t let your creativity be confined! Learn about working with recycled materials through the investigation of techniques such as painting porous materials, sanding, and heat-molding. Campers will use conventional and unconventional materials of various shapes and sizes to sculpt and build abstract 3D wall sculptures. Campers will also manipulate our recycled materials and sculpt them to create a functional, funky, and vibrant lamp that the students will get to take home with them!
