GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) The Colorado Mesa University Sustainability Council and Positive Movement are teaming up to teach you how to turn that pile of trash in your garbage into art.

The groups are hosting free-to-the-public workshops, run by ' Tres Resignify,' an upcycling art group out of Mexico City.

The classes began Tuesday afternoon and continue for the rest of the week.

"Their purpose is to resignify our idea about garbage," says Nicholas Moore of Positive Movement. "We're turning what most people would consider waste into artwork."


October 23rd - Grand Junction Art Center 6-9 p.m.
October 25th - CMU Fine Arts Building, room 202 6-9 p.m.

Art Showcase/Aqua Jam will take place Friday, October 25th on the South Patio of the CMU University Center from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
