S.C.R.A.P. Gallery (Student Creative Recycle Art Program)

Since 1997, the S.C.R.A.P. Gallery has been integrating art and the environment for youth. S.C.R.A.P. Gallery addresses two of today's most urgent issues - the environment and the education of our youth. Our mission is to actively engage youth in art experiences introducing them to their local and global environment through the use of recycled and reused materials. We work with youth to promote conservation and reuse by teaching them to creatively practice the Four R's - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Responsibility.

Programs

Students of all ages are encouraged to create art from scraps by participating in waste prevention field trips which are held in a 22,000 square foot Quonset Hut on the Riverside County Fairgrounds in Indio, California or through our cultural/environmental art exchange programs, working with students in the United States, Mexico and Europe. A hands-on setting is an important component of education presentations as it provides concrete visual and tactile examples of central lesson concepts.
