reDiscover gives scrap and discards new life as art materials.  The reDiscover Center in Culver City is where you can find everything from mylar ribbons to dowels to belt buckles to tennis balls to a million other things. They provide these materials at minimal cost and incorporate them into programs that empower kids’ fanciful imaginations.  The Office of Sustainability and the Environment sponsors reDiscover programming for Santa Monica elementary schools and events. 

reDiscover provides programs throughout Santa Monica, Los Angeles, and Culver City at festivals, in schools, and with their community partners. Their studio and warehouse are open for drop-in making every Saturday from 11:00-5:00, by appointment, and for scheduled events.

Through workshops and other opportunities, they show parents, educators and children how to reuse unwanted products as hands-on learning tools that are challenging, thought-provoking, inexpensive, and friendly to our environment. To learn more visit
