Arts and crafts dominated the academies of 1920s Germany, where artisans churned out vast loads of precisely woven lanyards and jagged, nightmarish seashell collages. Remake your own art with today's deal: for $12, you get $25 worth of green activities and crafts at reCREATE Eco-Art Center, about 30 minutes northeast of downtown Sacramento in Roseville. This Groupon may be used for more than one drop-in session for multiple participants, or applied toward classes, camp tuition, parties, or gift certificates.

ReCREATE's approach to conservation unleashes the inner outsider artist in all who enter the center's cheery, well-organized studio. The guerrilla-crafting cooperative rescues unwanted office supplies, retail detritus, and industrial byproducts from a destiny of landfill lining, in the process building a vast repository of reusable craft materials. Drop-in sessions ($5 each) allow developing da Vincis to create milk-jug masks and packing-foam puppets to their hearts' content. Conservational crafters purchase bulk supplies from the studio's bins of cast-off designer-fabric samples, cigar boxes, paper, tile chips, cardboard, and more, while reCREATE supplies scissors, glue, and any other necessary equipment. Amateur artists of all ages can spontaneously generate boats, figurines, and dioramas in-studio, or shop for materials to build a man-sized version of Mouse Trap at home.

For structure fans who prefer coloring inside the lines, reCREATE will resume classes (generally $15 each) in September, educating participants in environmental conservation and artistic skills that can be used later in life to craft voodoo dolls from detergent bottles and pulley systems from dismantled Rube Goldberg structures. Parents who can't wait that long can pack their youngsters (ages 6 and up) away to summer day camps ($139), where hyperactive mini-humans will be plied with Earth-friendly projects and snacks from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for five days straight.

Maximum of one Groupon per week of camp tuition.

Great place to let the imagination go wild!!!!!
Jennifer R. · January 11, 2012
Donna is great and so is her staff, they are always friendly and full of creative ideas. I love that I don't have to be the creative one when it comes to crafts for my kids and that I don't have to clean up when the kids are done with their project. Jeanine Turner
