heart kid artProfessional artists are hired through the Depot’s Special Events program to conduct hands-on “eco-art” activities for the community. They are available for schools, libraries, public fairs and festivals, or private parties. Both children and adults will learn about the importance of reuse and recycling while making art projects, useful crafts, and even costumes from reused items from the Depot.
