We will be adding to our list of project ideas every third Thursday, so stay tuned for more! Most of these projects will use materials that can often be found at home. We can guarantee you that “Art Finds A Way!” If you don’t have the exact materials listed, there are often even better as-yet-undiscovered substitutions to be found out there. Work with what you have and you may accidentally come across an even better way of making. “Necessity is the mother of invention!”
Please send pics of your amazing art projects to Artpix@annarborartcenter.org
