BPT's Featured Non-Profit: Arts and Scraps

August 31, 2011 12:00 PM

I had the pleasure of meeting the organization Arts & Scraps last month in Detroit for the Detroit Maker Faire (a faire based around new ideas for reusing, recycling and creating). At their booth, kids (and adults) used the recycled materials that were provided to creatively think about how these old pieces could be transformed into something new. It was so much fun to see the kids walking around with their creations.

Arts & Scraps started in 1989 with the mission of using recycled industrial scraps to help people of all ages and abilities think, create and learn. They accomplish this by making creative experiences affordable and accessible. Their vision for the future is to "reach every undeserved child in the Detroit metropolitan area with quality creative and educational experiences."

Live in the Detroit area and looking for something new to do for your kids birthday party? Want to hold a workshop or an art therapy session? Well, you're in luck because Arts & Scraps also has a ScrapMobile. Contact the ScrapMobile and they will come to you! Have something you aren't using any more that you were about to throw away? What is one's trash, is another's treasure. See if Arts and Scraps can use it and be a part of their efforts.

Now, what are you going to do with those left over packing materials and old crayons?

For more information, visit their website.

Happy creating!
