Dr. J has been drinking and we’ve been encouraging him to drink more.
Can I get you another beer honey pie?
Dad, are you finished yet?
We rarely ask for Dr. J’s help in creating our art but in this case we NEED him. Mostly because I’m a lush and beer gives me a buzz after the first half (I have a much better tolerance for wine and vodka!)
How cool are the airplanes they made using recycled cardboard- they really fly well off the 2nd story landing!
I even enjoy creating beer cap art alone. There is a satisfaction in the limitations of the size of a beer cap that make it less overwhelming. On a day that I have not expanded my creativity I can take out some glue and ‘fill’ the caps as I see fit. When we have company I try and encourage everyone to save their caps- and I've been buying beers with cool caps!
Here are some images of truly spectacular works of art made using beer caps.
Questions to consider while creating:
What materials (medium) are we using to create?
What types of art genres use found objects or recycled objects? (most commonly Assemblage but also Found Art, Junk Art and a fairly new term is Up-cycled Art)
What textures are used? (Intrinsic to the properties of metal, paper, plastic etc.)
Do you have any interesting uses for beer caps?
