Trash to Treasure in Upcycling Camp....a unique art camp experience

This week, I've had the unique experience of helping a great bunch of campers turn a bunch of discarded items into little treasures. They have done an outstanding job of creating in our first Upcycling Camp at Creative Genius. In fact, based on feedback we've received from both children and adults, a few of these projects will be added to our workshop schedule for ADULTS in Fall/Winter 2011-2012...stay tuned for more info soon!

Among the many pieces of junk that have been converted to artistic creations:
Old spools
Assorted buttons
old books
bottle caps
water bottles
tape measures
cereal boxes
paper towel rolls
soda tabs
vintage clippings
old lace
extra sequins
and much much more!

I have to hand it to these kids--they have taken some truly challenging projects and made them their own.  Great job, campers!
