Upcycle Weeds Into Wonders - Library Resource Roundup Presentation  

Upcycle withdrawn materials into artistic or functional items. Transform a VHS case into a clutch, a CD/DVD into a clock or wall hanging, a book into a sculpture, a dictionary page into wall art. You are only limited by your imagination.

Contest Details

Book Art Contest:  Books Transformed Into Art

 When is the contest?  April 4 - 28, 2016

Who can participate?  Cole Students & Staff

What can I make?  Any creative item incorporating part, or all, of a book—the only limit is your imagination!  It should be small enough to bring into the Media Center and place on display.  There are many options—pictures, sketches, paintings, collages, sculptures, jewelry, planters, and more.  For examples look around the Media Center, view Ms. Hoecker's Pinterest Boards (below), or view the Slidely Slideshow (above) to see more examples.

Where do I get books to use?  Ask Ms. Hoecker or Mrs. Oroszi--we have books set aside.

If a book isn’t your personal property, ask for permission before you transform it into art.

How do I enter the contest?  Bring your Book Art to the Media Center and complete the short entry form.  Submit your entry no later than 4:00 pm on Thursday, April 28.

What can I win?  Gift Cards and items from the Media Center prize collection which includes books, posters, book bags, mugs, lanyards, and more!
