S.B.-based collective Art From Scrap (AFS) kicks off its weekly art workshop season this Saturday and has all kinds of good — and trashy — fun in the works. True to its reduce-reuse-recycle form, every workshop utilizes discarded items from the AFS store, which will be sure to kick your — or your little one’s — creativity into gear. Learn from well-known S.B.-area artists while turning trash into treasure at these events this month:
• Mobile Wonders! With guest artist Bill O’Malley (Sat., Jan. 7).
• Dream Boxes: With guest artist Beth Amine (Sat., Jan. 14).
• Making Magic Books: With guest artist Carol Kemp (Sat., Jan. 21).
• Little People and Places! With guest artist Bill O’Malley (Sat., Jan. 28).
All workshops run from 10 a.m.-noon at AFS’s headquarters (302 E. Cota St.). Classes are $8; children under age 5 must be accompanied by an adult. Call 884-0459 for more info.
