senior project: don't buy new, upcycle!

paula.carranza@academicarts.org

Hello. My name is Paula, and I have been going to Academic Arts for four years. For my senior project I will be presenting two projects that I am working on. My first project is going to be an upcycling project, which uses old materials and uses those materials to create something else with a new purpose. I will do this by taking an old shelf and turning it into a bench with shelves for all my books.

For my second project is also an upcycling project. I am going to make and stretch my own canvas using two by fours. After creating my canvas, I will paint a picture. With these two projects, my goal is to show the local community that you do not need to throw old things away and buy new. By upcycling, everyone can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
