Plastic Free July: Up-cycling Art for Kids!

Upcycling is a fun way to reduce waste by reimagining unwanted items and turning them into other useful items or works of art! Not everything can be recycled, but we can give new life to old items by reusing and upcycling them. Participants will learn about the impact of plastic pollution on our oceans and wildlife, and will create works of upcycled art from the plastic items. Join UCRRA in celebrating Plastic Free July and the UCRRA Zero Waste Seminar Project and make sea creatures out of plastic! All craft materials will be provided. Class size is limited. This FREE hands on class is for youth ages 6-13.

Please note: This class is in-person at Ulster County Landing Park Robert E. Post Pavilion – Rain or Shine! Parental supervision is necessary. All participants are asked to please wear a mask. We encourage families to pack a zero-waste lunch to enjoy after the class!
