Art with Everyday Materials

27 02 2009

thumb_cornerforest1Artists Tara Donovan  and Yuken Teruya use everyday materials to create their artworks. Not only are their sculptures creative, but they are also made from useful, everyday objects you have in your own home. By making art from recycled materials, you can save the environment and our natural resources. Here’s what some of Tara Donovan’s installations look like:

Be an artist! Make your own recycled creation! Check out photos of V’s art. She was inspired by Tara Donovan’s exhibit, and decided to make her own creation.

What can you make from things you have in your home? You can use all sorts of recyled materials you have around your house to make art. You can use  newspapers, plastic bottles, yogurt cups, paper towel rolls, egg cartons… the list goes on!
