Join us for an afternoon of crafting and create your own 5″x7″ mosaic using aluminum cans. Norma Rios-Sierra, of Mosaico Arte, will guide participants as they cut recycled aluminum cans and tack the pieces into place to create a beautiful piece of sustainable art! All supplies and materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own unique or colorful cans to incorporate into your piece.
