On Friday, August 1, 2014 the Spare Parts Fine Arts Fair was held. The CM Collective was asked to snag some photos and pick up some video of the event. We have covered Spare Part activities in the past, but this one holds a special place in our hearts. The Spare Parts Fine Arts Fair main event is a re-use give away of materials for k-12 teachers. The purpose of the giveaway is help k-12 teachers with the hardship of having enough arts supplies for the entire year.
The cost of entry is a 10 dollar donation that goes to helping sustain the yearly event. What transpires at the Fine Arts Far is an amazing attendance by San Antonio teachers who come with all kinds of approaches to gaining the maximium amount materials. Event veterans come with huge suit cases and for n00b’s they often end up being coached by the veterans in line as to what to expect.
Overall the event is an amazing experience for all involved, whether you are a volunteer or a participant there is a certain energy that is created unites us all. If you want to get involved with next years event or would like to attend as a teacher, contact Spare Parts through their contact page. If you would like to support or donate to their cause, visit their Donation page.
We look forward to future collaborations with Spare Parts!
