Arts, Culture & Fun: Materials for the Arts Reusable Art Making

Nov 12, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| Free

Join artists from Materials for the Arts for an art making workshop for adults. Experiment with
the many ways the reusable materials around us can be repurposed into fantastic art
pieces. Learn various techniques in making sculptures from materials such as wire, plastic,
buttons, paper scraps, and much more. You’ll get to take home your sculpture! MFTA
donates all the found objects and supplies. No experience is necessary.

Materials for the Arts, a unit of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, is NYC’s premier
reuse facility, offering thousands of pounds of reusable materials as art supplies to the city’s
Public Artists, Teachers, and Community Centers. The MFTA Gallery hosts exhibits of artwork made from repurposed materials and MFTA offers workshops to thousands of students, teachers, and community members of NYC.
