After the parcels have all arrived and the presents have been unwrapped, what do we do with all of the boxes? At the Art of Play Studio, we use them for our special Boxing Day event! Cardboard and boxes will be the focus of our artwork and creative explorations during this workshop. From painting to creating sculptures and everything in between, we will experiment to see how many inventive ways we can use cardboard in combination with other materials. Glue guns will be used. Feel free to bring any boxes and cardboard in good condition that you may have to add to our collection! This is a drop off program.
