Arts & Scraps
February 27, 2010
I have enjoyed using Arts and Scraps for a number of years. Beginning my adventure when they were located on East Warren and continuing to the current location on Harper. They have increased in space size and material supplies but the staff size has remained low. Unlike in other industries where the customer might go lacking for service not at Arts and Scraps. They are like "Super Staff and Volunteers" always there to help with a smile on their face. Not only do I buy for myself for craft projects but plan future projects for my church group. In the past I have had them come on site for Union picnics and bought bags of "stuff" when I see them at conferences. I have learned lessons on using recycled materials and thought more about what I throw away. Arts and Scraps has been a fun art and education adventure then is everchanging.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the use of the materials to create craft projects.
Speaking with volunteers and listening to their experiences.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Buy (or build) building with warehouse, have community satellites along with the Art on wheels vehicles.Include space for Resident Artist. Increase the staff & media knowledge how art and education go together and throwaways have a reusable way.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every month
