Wear your bird brain to this class to take mixed media to a new level. Learn to use torn and cut maps and magazine pages to create striking bird nests—real and imaginary. Discover how to use recycled paper as if it is paint to create a unique work of art. You will be guided through the technical challenge of making realistic renderings from recycled materials, and produce one or two frame- ready works of art.

Supplies Needed for Class: NONE!
