Re-Deme Studio 2019

Business Information
Name of Organization: 
Re-Deme Studio
Organization Type: 
Business Description: 
We are different than other art studios because along with traditional materials we use donated materials that were once unwanted, like new wood from a local woodworker, stockpiled jewelry and misprinted wallpaper. Our space is inspired by process based and child led teaching philosophies. So our students learn how to use what we have around us to make unique one of a kind art! We strongly encourage environmental responsibility and creativity. 
It can't get any more enriching AND fun. 
Our mission is to encourage and empower children to find their confidence and self worth. We integrate the arts into classes that explore subjects like social studies & science. Through our youth classes we facilitate creative expression, engaged learning, and social good.

Management and Leadership
Identify Sustainability Leader
Description of Action: 
I have connected with local artists who share the same vision for creative reuse. We work together to run workshops, showcasing our work in local events and talk about how items that are still good can be redirected from the waste stream and used for learning or turned into beautiful art.
Waste Reuse
Description of Action: 
In each of our workshops there is always some form of creative reuse. We take in donations from the local community and have remade items like unwanted dishes into garden art and broken jewelry into collage wall art. Take a look through for some more information. The art on our gallery walls incorporates reuse items and we teach our participants how to take unwanted items from trash to cherished works of art. Just a quick look around our studio will demonstrate the many items on our shelves we have used in repurpose projects. This keeps our costs down and diverts safe, clean and cool items from the waste stream.

Serve Customers with Disabilities
Description of Action: 
We are meeting with rehabilitation and assistive technology specialists to learn more about how we can be an accessible place to all. We have already learned how we can use a reusable item like cardboard to make our tables and tools more accessible.
Shop Local
Description of Action: 
We strongly value community and are working to build relationships with our local community. We are participating in an art event at Cowan's Public a local restaurant and have been connecting with a local makerspace and a local stained glass shop with the hope that we can collaborate on other projects that foster community and creativity.
