You know that drawer that you have in your house that has somehow accumulated years of paperclips, pen caps, broken rubber bands, and discarded bottle caps? You know the one. Instead of being ashamed, put it to good use! These seemingly worthless objects are the perfect materials for craft time with your munchkins. Spend an afternoon making “junk sculptures!” Use a piece of cardboard for the base, bust out the tacky glue, and watch your little ones build imaginative pieces of 3-D art!
Some of our favorite pieces of art here at the High are made from found objects (things that others may have thrown away). We have artworks made from chewing gum, bottle caps, broken mirrors, and cardboard. Bring your family to get inspired in our Folk Art collection where you will meet artists that were just average people using everyday objects to make extraordinary things.
