TPR Presents: The Art of Recycling

Jul 10, 2015

Families, join us on Saturday, August 15 from 1:00 to 4:00 at the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum (116 Blue Star) for “TPR Presents: The Art of Recycling.” Come join your fellow Texas Public Radio listeners and members for a free community event that will highlight new developments in recycling in San Antonio, and also offer opportunities for kids and their parents to create their own artistic projects out of ordinary household materials (otherwise known as “junk”!).

Activities include:

  • Marble Runs
  • Mosaic Tiles
  • Percussion Instruments (complete with drumming demonstrations from The Carver Community Cultural Center's TBow)
  • Superhero Crafts
  • Memory Bottles
  • Bird Feeders
  • T-Shirt Aprons
  • Free Art

Several local non-profits and arts organizations will be there to guide kids through the creative process. While at the event, kids can also enjoy complimentary KIND snacks.

Participating organizations include:

Autism Treatment Center, Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, Carver Community Cultural Center, The Children's Shelter, The DoSeum, Inspire Fine Art Center, Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, Spare Parts,The State of Texas Alliance for Recycling and more...

Shuttle service will be provided to transport people to Artpace's Family Day: A Summer Celebration, so you can have convenient access to both free events.

TPR members are also encouraged to bring new art supplies for donations in the new school year to S.M.A.R.T. Specific needs include markers, construction paper, tempera paint and pencils.

TPR Presents: The Art of Recycling is a free community event, and will feature activities for all ages and abilities.
