The Green Artists identify sources of industrial and commercial scrap, approach business owners willing to donate paper, cardboard, wood, metal, textiles and other materials which would normally be discarded. They gather, warehouse, sort and process those items, and in turn distribute them to schools and recreational centers as a way of supporting art, shop and craft classes which have increasingly become challenged by reductions in available funding. It is the goal of the Green Artists to encourage recycling in the arts community through a program of support and education.
Those who would like to participate in the program, receive materials or donate resources, are welcome to contact the organization.
We look forward to working with young people and educators, as well as local artists and crafters who would like to learn about the use of recycled materials in the arts. Together, we can challenge the creative process and enhance the environment and our community.
