REnewing with
Creativity Drive

It is time to search through closets, clean out that junk drawer, organize your garage, thin your basement or finally let go of the craft supplies you keep thinking you will use. We want your “stuff” to Be EPiC Everyday!

Studio Four has been studying ways to be sustainable in our world. As one of our solutions, we are holding a REnewing with Creativity drive for the month of November to collect materials that all EPiC students can use to create in our studio maker spaces. Handcrafted books, prototypes, design solutions, explorations and creations - we are all makers!

Please look at the list of materials below to see if you have anything to donate to the drive. If you are not using it, let us see what we can create with it!

Note: We will have REnewing with Creativity Drives throughout the year, so if you don’t have anything now, keep on the look out for more opportunities to donate. Please do not send trash, but only materials that can be renewed.
