Happy New Year!

I hope you had a good holiday.  We went through our annual cleaning and everything looks amazing.

We invite you to do the same at home or at your workplace.  Maybe you would like to organize a SCRAP donation drive at your office or have made a resolution to clear space at home.  Cheryl Kapchan, our Outreach Coordinator would be happy to work with your business to set up a donation.  She can be reached at outreach@scrap-sf.org.  I know I make deals with myself to try to bring more in to SCRAP than I take home in an effort to control clutter.  It is an ongoing battle at my house.  At least I know that there is a good place to take all this stuff rather than just throw it away.

I look forward to seeing you at SCRAP.

Warm regards,

Kenan Shapero

Reddy Lieb

participants how to create decorative and expressive glasspanels, jewelry, or small sculptures using recycled glass, collage, and stained glass techniques.  Participants will scrounge through the treasures of scrap to find decorative papers, metal, images, glass pieces, etc that they will use in making mixed media collage works. The collaged works will then be sandwiched between glass and framed in copper foil.  Reddy will instruct students in basic glasscutting and preparation techniques as well as instruct them on how to solder their final piece.

"Corazon Puro: The Pure Heart"
with Mariana Fay
February 12th, 1-4pm  fee: $25

Mariana Fay 'Valor'

"Corazon Puro" is a workshop on the traditional use of the heart in Mexican Art. Join us in welcoming  artist Mariana Fay as she shares her love for the everyday in the art of Mexico and of Mexicanos born in the U.S. Participants will be shown that a little beauty and imagination can bring joy to the mundane.

With Mexican design in mind Mariana will lead the class in making hearts using all manner of collage supplies:  fabric, string, colored board, metal pieces, ribbon, paint, etc, etc.. whatever is available to make a jewel-like tribute to this tradition. She will share examples of Mexican hearts and some of her own ideas, and be present as a guide to give technical advise and to coax students ideas into the reality of works of art that can be taken home and hung on a wall, in a window, on a door, in the car, or given as a gift to a loved one. "My students can expect a fun, relaxed, community art experience, where we share words as we work and share supplies around the table as we develop our ideas--a Mexican quilting bee of sorts--for hearts!"
