Our Mission:

To develop, heal and grow community through recycled art.


We aim to inspire more art and assist artists in developing skills for art creation

by using and re-using the available resources around them.

Our objective is to teach people how to create "art with purpose"

reusing discarded, unwanted, and excess items; creating generations of

artists and crafters who are more environmentally conscious.
