Sip AND Scrap! Help transform recycled materials into decorations for Little 5 Points.
The Little 5 Points Business Association (L5PBiz) and Scraplanta invite creatives of all skill levels to an evening of “sipping and scrapping!” Help transform recycled materials into sustainable art to decorate Findley Plaza at the L5 Corner Tavern (1174 Euclid Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307) on Sunday, April 16, from 4-7 pm. This will be the first “Sip & Scrap” of the summer, and is the result of a recent community grant from the Atlanta Neighborhood Planning Unit (NPU) system.
Each month’s Sip-'n-Scrap events promise an enjoyable and educational experience for all participants, with art teachers and materials provided by Scraplanta. The art created by participants will decorate Findley Plaza throughout the summer, promoting sustainability in the community. The April Scrap will be themed for Record Store Day (April, 22) and springtime in general. Participants will have the opportunity to create record flowers made from old 45's, among other eco-friendly art pieces for the community plaza, and also to bring home.
"We are super excited about the “Scraps” bringing the community together and promoting sustainability in a fun and creative way," said Kelly Stocks, president of L5PBiz. "We're thrilled to partner with Scraplanta on this project and to offer monthly recurring events that showcase the artistic talent of our community."
Scraplanta Creative Reuse is a 501(c)3 non-profit on a mission to empower Atlanta artists, makers, teachers, and students to create beautiful works of art from discarded materials. They also have a retail store, now open and selling materials to the Atlanta creative community at 2130 Henderson Mill Rd.
"We're thrilled to partner with L5PBiz to showcase sustainable art and inspire people to make a difference in their communities," said Sarah Jewell, an organizer at Scraplanta.
The Sip-'n-Scrap on April 16, is open to everyone, regardless of age or skill level, and is completely free of charge. Drinks and refreshments will be available from the L5 Corner Tavern.
