Favorite Artist of the Week: Michelle Stitzlein
As an elementary art teacher with a tiny budget, I love learning about how to use recycled products to make fabulous art. When I came across artist, Michelle Stitzlein, I thought her use of found materials to create new sculptures, was pretty awesome. She uses piano keys, broken china, fragments of old furniture, and other scraps to make butterflies. She also teaches workshops on how to turn bottlecaps into sculptures. Her book, Bottlecap Little Bottlecap, will also show you how to do it.
