Arts & Scraps is a great resource for the learning community. On several occasions I have taken kits and materials to my children's school and did activities with their classmates. Everytime I see one of their classmates they ask are we doing a craft today or when are we going to do another one. Not only does the wonderful materials at Arts & Scraps incite creativity and fun but it allows parents to be active and have fun with their children and others, in the educational process. It is a proven fact that parental involvement in schools help to produces successful students. And on top of everything else we are talking about recycling; Arts & Scraps is a win, win!!

I absolutely love Arts and Scraps, both the store and the organization. It's one of those places where I almost hate to pass the word on, because then I'll spoil it for myself. This is the place I go when I either really am in a rut and need some out of the ordinary materials to inspire me, or the place where I just know I will find the perfect accents or supplies for a low cost. Digging around the store is a really fun way to pass the time. Aside from the excellent shopping experience, Arts and Scraps does great work in the Detroit area communities. At a time when arts and creative funding are being cut in schools, and agency like this really help to fill the void in getting our children to use their creative minds and expressions. I am a social worker in the area, and around the holidays I stocked up on scrap kits for the children of my clients. Getting to watch them put together a masterpiece while I met with their parents was such a spirit lifter.
