Have you ever thought to build something out of materials that you normally consider trash? Recyclable Sculptures Camp allows campers to see “trash” in a new light! We will be creating large and small scale sculptures using materials such as bottle caps, plastic containers and bottles, styrofoam, bubble wrap, wood scraps and anything else that you might normally find hanging out in the trash can or recycling bin at home. Campers will create these sculptures with an emphasis on artistic design, creativity and function.
Mini Fools Rules is inspired by the Annual Fools Rules Regatta held in Jamestown every summer, where participants build a life-sized boat out of unconventional materials, to race at East Ferry Beach. We will not be making sculptural boats that are large enough to actually sail, but sculptures should be made with the intention to float at East Ferry for the last class. Each camper will receive an award: most creative, most likely to stay afloat, most luxurious, etc. Camp participants will be encouraged to bring in recyclable materials to build their artistic float. The last session will be held at East Ferry Beach in Jamestown to sail our Mini Fools’ Rules Sculptures — family and friends are welcome to come watch!
Please wear appropriate clothing, as there is potential for spills and stains. Campers should bring a snack and water bottle each day.
