Have you ever heard the phrase "One person's junk is another person's treasure?" During this week of camp, we will be taking "junk" and making new and exciting art with it. Use your creativity to inspire others using found objects, old items, and "junk". We will take a field trip to an antique mall to find some treasured junk to make fabulous art and on Friday University Galleries will host a pop-up expedition of our students' art!
