Art From Scrap Hosts Fun Winter Art Workshops

Art From Scrap (AFS) is a S.B.-based collective that promotes environmentally sustainable art by creating unique and whimsical projects out of reused and recycled materials. This winter, the organization will host a series of fun, family-friendly art workshops led by some of its guest artists, who will help creative minds of all ages and abilities make masterpieces out of malarkey. The following is a lineup of just a few of AFS’s upcoming classes:

Origami Creations, Water Bombs, and More! Led by instructor Chloe Gray (Sat., Jan. 29)
