Welcome to the world of recycled art!  In this class we will be using plastics, papers, cans and more  to create unique, even art pieces. In this class we will :

– Explore the fundamentals of using recyclable materials when creating art

– Using different materials like plastics, tin, cardboard and more to enhance your work

– Developing your own style

There will be demonstrations and class projects as well as students working on projects of their choosing. If you love to recycle, or want to know what to do with all the plastic piling up, then you will enjoy this art class! Students of all levels and experience are welcome.

You may be asked to contribute recyclables, however most other supplies are included.

 

 


Instructor: Christina Davis

Christina Davis is a local muralist and art instructor for Blue Ridge Montessori School and Onward Academy this Spring. She  promotes enthusiasm for learning  new mediums through popular subject matters like landscapes, strong female figures ,and anime!  Her studio pieces have been exhibited at the Academy Center for the Fine Arts and participated in First Fridays on many occasions. She works on numerous community projects to bring more color , accessibility , and diversity through art.
Her passion for expressing her identity led her to become a self taught artist. When she isn’t teaching art, drinking coffee , or spending time with her daughter: She loves to create pieces that reflect her voice, color, and individualism . Her work captures the most fleeting moments, and the way she looks at the world. Focus on most of her series starts with a face or emotion, then she starts improvising during the process, and dark contour lines.
