Join us at the Vancouver Island School of Art September 24 – 25, 2016 for our first ever Pop-Up Shop event!

We will be selling ‘alternative art materials’ by the bagful. Purchase a grocery bag for $10 or a lunch bag for $6 and take home as many treasures as your bag can hold!

Local businesses have been generously donating their surplus, cast-off and recycled materials to artsREACH for our new upcycled art program called reCREATE. Come fill your bag with our large selection of fabric and paper swatches, fasteners, notions, craft supplies and ‘whatzits’ of every shape and size!

During the event, you can visit our new artsREACH caravan parked in front of the school to pick up a toonie “mystery grab bag.” Kids can take their bag inside to create a craft project with the help of our artsREACH instructors.

Come join the fun and be inspired to create awesome recycled art. You won’t want to leave empty handed!

If you’re able to help out, we need volunteers!

If you, your friends, or family are interested in volunteering at what will be a really fun event, please sign-up for a volunteer slot (or two!). You can help sell bags of alternative art supplies, or work with kids making crafts, sell art-books or help out with set-up and clean-up.

Please consider donating a couple of hours of that weekend to help the Pop-Up Shop and craft session to be a big success! Proceeds from the pop-up shop go towards our artsREACH classes for kids.
