Art From Scrap

I was up in Santa Barbara today, and I stopped by a fun art supply store called Art From Scrap. They sell everything from leather scraps to fabric remnants, yarn, beads, wooden pieces, used canvases, frames, kitchen stuff, and scientific equipment as well as all sorts of things I couldn’t identify. The store is packed with interesting possibilities. It’s all there to be repurposed for art, and it’s very inexpensive.

They also have a gallery upstairs where they show artwork made from the leftover stuff that they sell. And they do children’s birthday parties in this room, which sounds like it would be really fun!
