Art From Scrap $30 for 30th

Birthday Fundraiser

Art From Scrap is turning 30 this year. We appreciate YOU, our patrons, shoppers, fiscal supporters, artists, teachers, families, business donors, and community members who have kept Art From Scrap thriving these past 30 years. Together, we have created so much!

Happy Birthday, Art From Scrap!

Here’s to 30 more years of creativity

Celebrating the Central Coast's Only Creative ReUse Store!

Help us celebrate thirty years of art, creative reuse, gallery shows, and field trips by making a donation to Art From Scrap today!

Art From Scrap was founded in 1990 as a volunteer effort by a group of parents who wanted to increase the availability of art supplies in the schools. For over thirty years, Art From Scrap has encouraged reuse as a way to protect the environment and has educated generations of children and adults about the importance of waste reduction, upcycling, recycling, and creative reuse.

Now more than ever we need your support to ensure that Art From Scrap remains an awesome community resource.

Double your Impact! Will your employer match your gift? Your company may double your donation through your employee charitable matching program. Ask your employer for more details.

We look forward to 30 more years of creativity and reuse with you!
