Turning Trash into Treasure

Found Art Workshop

Marshall J. Gardner Center For The Arts

Another fun family art workshop at the Miller Beach Arts & Creative District!

Bring your own found objects to the Marshall J. Gardner Center for the Arts and turn them into something magical.  Fantastic art can be created from things laying around the house or found discarded outside.  You’d be amazed what beauty some old plastic margarine cups, scrap metal, driftwood or bottle caps can hold.  Resident Art from Excess guru Chris Toepfer will be on hand to help you turn your ideas into art.  Appropriate for all ages. Donations to cover supplies gratefully accepted.

Please register (free) so we have an idea of how many people to expect.
