Education & Job Training: Resources, Opportunities, Strategies

Re-cycling Art Center

For many years, I taught an up cycling class to folks with disabilities - we worked on furniture, household items, did some sewing, artwork - lots of cool stuff - That We Sold!!!!!!


With the right tools, space etc., I believe this could be a lucrative and creative endeavor for people with disabilities. It would encompass job skills, paid employment, art education and training - An Arts Center/Store


Ideally it would be a fairly large space - with a place to work, a place to store furniture, etc - (that I get for free on craigslist, etc.) - and ideally a store front to sell and stage the beautiful work.


There is def a market for this kind of product I also had a store for 2 years that sold up cycled products - it did well.


I would love to talk to more people about getting this off the ground....
