Thank you for supporting UPCYCLE!

We’re still smiling from our great day at the Art Center yesterday. Upcycle 2016 was a great day full of creative energy, focused on reusing and remaking found materials, and our courtyard and studios were filled with families and friends making art! Over 300 people attended our event!

Our thanks extend to the Richmond community who turned out to explore and create with us: everything from weaving rugs with Travis, to relief printing with Dawn, to treasure box mosaics with Daud, to metals with Taylor, and screenprinting with Joyce and Michael. The dance was in the air, thanks to DJ Agana, and everything ran so smoothly thanks to our facilities staff (Rebeca, Ted, and Petey), our Volunteer Coordinator Nisha, and her gang of superhero volunteers. And the Watershed Project had a great interactive demo to teach us all about our precious local ecosystem. Thank you to our sponsors, the Richmond Rotary Club and Localwise, for their support of our event.

We hope you’ll join us again next year for Upcycle, and keep all of our upcoming events in mind! See you soon in the galleries and in class!

(We have even more photos on Facebook, so check those out too! And if you’d like to volunteer for one of our events, we’d love to talk to you.)
