Connecting Classrooms to Creativity.
We invite schools to connect with us and our GalleRE exhibitions so students have a chance to see artwork from local artists and engage in related hands-on making.
Generous support from funders and corporate sponsorships has enabled us to provide a limited number of GalleRE stARTer kits at no cost to eligible classroom teachers for each GalleRE exhibition we host.
Each kit is designed to be a companion to the GalleRE theme and artwork, and can be applied to K-12 curriculum content. All kits have video links, a lesson plan, access to interviews with artists and upcycled supplies (some additional tools or consumables will be needed, like scissors and glue).
This opportunity is available to any Title 1 Palm Beach County School K-12 teacher through a simple application process, outlined below. As we only make 100 of each kit, we limit the number of kits to a maximum of 30 per teacher. However, while kits are intended for one student, they have the potential to serve more than one student.
Kits will be awarded on a 1st come basis while supplies last. Teachers who receive kits must submit a minimum of 5 images per 10 kits received of student creations to be added to our online gallery.
Not a Title 1 school and still interested in kits for your classroom? Teachers can still submit an application, and will be put on a waitlist for later in the year to be contacted if there are any remaining kits.

Waste to Wonder Kit
This wonderful box of Random! Our Waste to Wonder kit is an open ended collection of random reusable supplies, meant to spark the imagination and have endless possibilities. Much like the Artists in Waste to Wonder, students will be given supplies and problem solve what to make with it. Each kit has different items, but most kits include cardboard tubes, CDs, wood pieces, foam, beads, colored paper, string, little doodads and such. Students can build, assemble, craft, make art, and is great for STEAM programs. Due to small objects in the kits, we recommend this kit for students 2nd grade and up.

This fun Kit full of fabric and wall paper samples is waiting to be turned into mini fashion designs and/or collages. By taking inspiration from our students designers in our Catwalk exhibition, your students can create with the provided materials and invent their own mini designs and collage scenes to showcase. This kit is made to be open for the students to use their own imagination and is suitable for 2nd grade and up. Middle and high schoolers would also enjoy this.
Based on the solo Exhibition “Thinking Out Loud” by local mixed media artist Sonya Sanchez Arias, this kit guides students into creating a functional and artistic journal from upcycled materials. Like Sonya's artwork, students will be bringing new life to common items by upcycling materials most people would look at as junk. Students will decorate their journal to reflect themselves and their world, and can use the journal for whatever they want; drawings, thoughts, writing prompts, and more. This project is wonderful for all ages, but 5 years old and younger may need to create with an adult as there are small pieces included in the kit.
