This program is ideal for fairs, festivals, and public events. It is an exploratory art activity where participants of all ages are invited to create with a large array of playful, reclaimed materials. Participants exercise their creative muscles and learn, hands-on, about reuse. The possibilities for end products during a Reuse-a-Palooza are nearly endless! Materials are set up buffet-style and each participant collects the materials they wish to use. Each work table has a kit of essential tools for making. Teaching artists provide examples, inspiration & encouragement, and assist with material selection and assembly on an as-needed basis.


A Reuse-A-Palooza can be customized to a theme. Here are some examples:
