Old Is New
Let's take a fresh look at
our world. This season, on Hands On Crafts for Kids,
host Jenny Barnett-Rohrs, is joined by artists Franz
Spohn and Candie Cooper. They show how to create crafts
from a fresh perspective using clay, paper, glue,
glitter, foam, paints, pastels and more.
Give a new twist to
traditional art forms. Jenny Barnett-Rohrs makes a
trinket box inspired by a popular video game. Then, she
makes a friendly turtle using the ancient art of mosaic.
Candie Cooper creates pop art with polka dots in the
style of the artist Kusama, and Jenny coils a rag basket
with a touch of denim.
