Oxbow Uncovers Hidden Beauty Upcycling Art Class

Post Date:01/09/2018 8:30 AM

Paper serves many purposes in the world today, but with the ingenuity of artists, paper has turned into colorful creations of all shapes and sizes.  With a little manipulation, paper can be transformed into three dimensional works of art.

Join upcycling artist Mary Tangora at the Oxbow Eco-Center on Saturday, Jan. 20 from 9 a.m. to noon. In this class, you’ll learn some creative conservation techniques and reinvent your recycling habits. While letting your creativity soar, you’ll also be introduced to the many ways artists around the world are creating magnificent art from trash.

Each year in the United States, more than two billion books, 350 million magazines, and 24 billion newspapers are published.  With all of this production there is all the more reason to think outside the box when it comes to disposable materials.

This series is appropriate for ages 12 and older; however, it is highly recommended that students younger than 16 have an adult to assist them. The cost of each class is $20, which includes all materials (unless otherwise stated). Registration is required by calling 772-785-5833 or e-mailing cartmille@stlucieco.org. Bring a lunch or food to snack on during the short break and enjoy the beautiful fall weather nestled in the forested amphitheater out back.

The Oxbow Eco-Center is a St. Lucie County environmental learning center located at 5400 N.E. St. James Drive in Port St. Lucie. To learn more call 772-785-5833 or visit www.oxboweco.com
