art for kids

Art of Recycling Festival is Nov 14

The Art of Recycling Festival will be Sunday, November 14, 2021 from 12-3 PM

PLEASE JOIN Grace Institute and Grace Art Camp artists for an America Recycles Day celebration featuring music played on instruments made by Robert Randall from recycled objects, a fabulous story with professional storyteller Will Hornyak, and new drop-in upcycled art projects, all led by multi-talented Grace Art Camp artists!

We are adding to our recycling collection efforts some of the hardest-to-recycle plastics along with two community partners this year:

  • Agilyx will collect clean, dry PS polystyrene No. 6 — both Styrofoam™ and rigid containers
  • Ridwell will collect No. 1 (may be labeled PETE or PET) clear plastic clamshells and used/broken/tired crayons for melting and reuse at children’s hospitals.

COVID-19 protocols, including mask-wearing for all, will be in place.

And, yes, all of the art projects pictured above were made from ordinary items — upcycled!
