This was the second Tin Can Art class this summer and it was a really creative group. Students learned how to cut, punch, rivet, solder, design, and build objects made from old tin cans. After starting slowly, the class began to see creative recycling uses for old painted tin cans and went to work. Items made ranged from animals to toys to wall sconce candle holders. We had many visitors, and they were all amazed at the varied objects being made by the students. We finished on Friday with a full table at the student exhibit. We received lots of “oohs” and “ahhs” as well as “When is the next time this class is going to be offered?” The pictures below will give you a small glimpse of the work accomplished this week. Look for this class when the next catalog comes out.  The classes will be held in July 2011 and October 2011.  Please join us and be sure to sign up early.
