The Austin Area Art Center will host a children’s class on recycling and reusing.

The class, hosted by Kim Finnegan, is for third-grade and up, and costs $12 for members and $15 for non-members.

During this fun-filled workshop, Finnegan will help students open their minds to new possibilities. Bits and pieces of odds and ends, recyclables and found objects will be used in the creation of unique art.
