First things first, all artists need a studio. It is a place to work and express yourself. Sometimes there is not enough space to have a crazy studio like Mrs. Rennalls. However you can make your own studio on the smallest space ever. First you need a shoebox and a piece of cardboard. The non-greasy side of a pizza box is great.
Next, find a few old mugs or bowls.
Add whatever glue and tape you have. Duct tape is nice for binding.
Maybe, some glitter or art supplies.
Add your old markers, crayons, pencils, and scissors.
Find an old tub for mixing and garbage.
Add an old ruler.
Maybe, a paintbrush.
Work mats can be made from throw away cardboard.
There you have it! a studio that you can take anywhere.
There are many steps to make a Starbook. Hopefully, you got a chance to make one in class. These are the instructions:
So, now that you are interested in trying out some new things, let’s get started! Remember when I asked you to check out the crafting materials at your house? Well, some of you might be saying that there is nothing there. I find that when this happens I have to look outside the box. And, sometimes a box is full of potential. I love to re-purpose things. I especially love to recycle things that would normally be thrown away. Always ask your guardians if you can use the found materials. You never know if something is valuable to them, or if they have plans to re-purpose/ recycle the item themselves. Here are some of the things that we throw out that can be used to make some groovy stuff:
paper towel rolls
boxes of all shapes and kinds
unsoiled pizza box lids
old/ or scratched DVD’s/ LP’s
