Crayons? Check. Markers? Check. Glitter? Check and check. You’ve got your tried and true art supplies, but throwing some fun new materials into the mix can open a whole new can of creative worms (the best kind of worms). Enter ArtScraps.
ArtScraps combines waste management with art making. In partnership with businesses and manufacturers, it collects scraps, overstock, factory rejects, and other items normally destined for landfill and makes it available to teachers, parents, artists, scout leaders, day care providers—anyone working with children or interested in reducing waste through reuse of discardable materials. You can buy cool artsy stuff by the bagful (new surprises every week!). Sample projects and an on-site artist will even show you how you can use it. And there are some pretty cool programs too.
So get a move on. You’ve got some lonely magnets just itchin’ to show off a masterpiece.
