Art FORM (Found Objects Recycled Materials)

In 2011, Art FORM (Found Objects Recycled Materials) was founded by studio creator Erin Pennell to broaden engagement of arts education with creative reuse.  Art FORM is a nonprofit 501c3 that provides arts education with creative reuse to schools, teachers, and the community.  Art FORM also provides access to creative reuse materials in its Saturday store from 10am-2pm which currently operates from the studio building at 3316 Adams Avenue, San Diego, CA 92116.  The community is welcome to gather reuse materials and art supplies for a low cost donation every Saturday from 10am-2pm.  All proceeds from Saturday store benefit Art FORM’s school and community programs.

Saturdays are also a great day to donate to Art FORM.  To find out more about donations to Art FORM, please see the Donations page or Donation Inquiry Email.
