Items-At-Home Art Project

Museum educators demonstrate how to make art using items you have in your home.  Every attempt will be made to adjust the project to various age levels.

NOTE: We often use a hot glue gun because the results are faster while we are recording. Elmers glue or gluesticks can also be used but require more drying time. If you use a hot glue gun for these projects please be careful and make sure an adult is helping.
