Trash to Treasure

Trinity Trust Summer Youth Program

"Trash to Treasure" Workshop, Saturday, Sept. 24, 1 to 4 pm


The Trinity County Arts Council will be presenting its annual Trinity Trust Summer Youth program on September 24th.  This year's event, Trash to Treasure, will be held on September 24th,  1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at John Garrett's Studio G behind the Highlands Art Center.  This one-day event is open to kids under 18, (children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult).  There will be mounds of good trash available for them  to sort through to find just the right items that go together to create a spectacular  "something".  

This crafts project provides parents an opportunity to share the vision of “Repurposing Trash” with their children.  We encourage you to take your children to the Main Street Gallery in Weaverville to see the imaginative way that several artists have created beautiful art from trash.  This is an opportunity to collect old toys and “stuff” that could be used or shared with the group and an opening to brainstorm about what can be created with the “stuff”.

Please contact us to reserve a space as space is limited – call 623-2760 or email    This is a free event.  This event is made possible through a grant from the Trinity Trust Summer Youth Program Grant, funded by the Daniel Holthaus Memorial Scholarship Fund and the Gates Family Endowment Fund for the betterment of Trinity County.
