S.C.R.A.P. Gallery is the only children’s art and environmental conservation museum in the eastern Coachella Valley, and the only one of its kind in Riverside County, CA. The facility allows for creative expression and education to take place.
Children create art on-site by using donated discarded materials while at the same time learning about complex environmental issues, arts, culture, science and much more. The gallery exhibits works of art by renown artists alongside those of S.C.R.A.P. Gallery youth, and houses both permanent and temporary interactive exhibits on issues like GMOs, renewable energy, water scarcity and climate change. Field trips for K-12 students take place throughout the week. The S.C.R.A.P. Gallery serves as a resource for teachers and students alike
