Art From Scrap began in 1990 with the unique vision of collecting scrap materials to combine art discovery and environmental education - Promoting a greater understanding of environmental issues and encouraging creative expression in the arts!
Over time our programs grew to include the AFS ReUse store, a Community Arts program, and a Reduce, Reuse, Recycle environmental education program. As our environmental education lessons grew to serve over 12,000 students each year throughout Santa Barbara County, our array of lesson topics expanded - focusing on waste reduction, water quality, and gardening – and the Watershed Resource Center was added as an additional education center. .
At this point Art From Scrap’s program activities had outgrown their name. Today Art From Scrap operates under Explore Ecology, an environmental education and art discovery organization, continuing to deliver all of the well known and much loved ReUse store and art programs that the community has come to rely on.
