Art from Recyclables
Grade level: 3-6th
Day and Time: Tuesdays 12n-2pm
Instructor: Adam Billingslea
Location: The Catskill Community Center, 344 Main St., Catskill
Why throw away what you can recycle or upgrade? Those worn-out items could be remade in your own unique style. This engaging program will open new doors for thinking minds. In this program, recyclables of all sorts (not just what’s in your bin) can be rebuilt & repurposed. Those favorite old T-shirts can be made into a quilt or pillow. Bring an old pair of sneakers back to life with a new paint job. Do Art! Be bold and creative, and make a forgotten item live on through a new form.
*This event is made possible in part with public funds from the Decentralization Program of the NYS Council on the Arts, administered in Greene County by the Greene County Council on the Arts through the Community Arts Grants program.

Pair up with your Grandparent or significant other ‘elder’ to learn portraiture, basic photography and studio lighting. This hands-on activity will give you the tools needed to set up a photo shoot and “capture” the essence of your subject. Each team will create their partner’s individual portrait AND go home with a large format photo of their choice. There will be a study of famous photographers, interactive exercises and games and more. Black & White Head Shots will also be created and shown in the gallery space at the Community Center.
