I have worked all of my life as a entrepreneur, volunteer and community organizer. I have owned my own flower shop, floral design school, guest ranch, was the volunteer coordinator for a county wide disaster recover team, the office manager for a community foundation, have taught business through the MAP program for the Montana Arts Council and have now started and direct a local non profit creative art center. When asked what SCRaP is all about my simple answer is :
SCRaP is a creative nonprofit art center providing gently used creative items to teachers, artists and children at an affordable price. We are a membership based community of likeminded people who Share a space, tools, equipment and knowledge, we provide an opportunity to Create with what is available from Reused materials and we Promote art as a healing and sustainable way of life.
We are currently working to create a manual and model to be able to share across the state as a way to share and use your communities local assets.
