Center for Recycled Art Now Nonprofit, Opens Teacher Depot

Houston’s  fledgling Center for Recycled Art, an educational nonprofit that brings crafty activities featuring re-purposed materials to schools, hospitals and daycare centers, has been granted nonprofit status. This means that all those empty can, bundles of old newspapers, old textbooks, and other clean, art-worthy refuse are now tax-deductible when you donate them to the cause.

The Center runs a once-a-month teacher warehouse at MECA’s Dow Elementary School, where documented public school teachers can fill bags with cheap goodies for their classes.

  1. And, for the record, the teachers’ warehouse is a huge boondoggle for those teaching art. I’ve bought scads of foam core, ribbon, medals (gymnastics, basketball, horse racing, etc), pens, markers, and paper which is essentially free ($5 for whatever you can stuff in a standard size grocery store paper sack) which has made it easy to provide supplies to students for in-class projects you haven’t even yet dreamed up!

  2. When does this even start? What time, so I can be early? :)
