Some people see a pile of scrap metals and envision a work of art. They transmute that pile into breathe taking art pieces. The main idea is not to invoke life into a pile of scrap metals but also to recognize the scrap metals as a nascent force; not as wasted energy but invested with creative energy.
The eventual outcome exhibits products through which, students can prove that ‘ART’-in any form of assemblage or installation could also be made without using traditional materials. Scrap to Sculpture is a concept that provides an “off the academic” opportunity for Participants to involve in a creative activity. As the name suggests, it is based on the thought that nothing is waste and a new creation happens when the old is lost. However, in general, the society discards what is broken and it goes in the environment and pollutes it. The said workshop uses that very waste material to generate a new shape that everyone recognizes with awe. In creating sculptures from scrap, participants learn new skills, such as creativity, welding, using their imagination, which they lose otherwise in the hectic academic environment. The workshop thus has the following specific aims:
i. Promote and support environmental care.
ii. Create artifacts from scrap.
iii. Ignite creativity among the young minds.
