Indigo Hippo Annual Community Fundraiser
Join us in spreading inclusion and accessibility through creativity!
Our efforts in the region are two-fold: an art supply thrift store + creative arts training & programming. Through our art supply thrift store, we keep valuable materials out of the waste stream and in the hands of people who need them with our pay-what-you-can model. Through our programming and trainings, we invest in leadership in the region, encouraging our community through the creative process.
Come visit the hippos!
We are loving our new space right up the street, and look forward to continuing to bring even more materials and supplies to the community, and continuing to make creativity accessible for everyone!
Monday-Saturday 11:00 am - 7:00 pm
Sunday 12:00 - 6:00 pm
Indigo Hippo Training : Creative Arts Programming
Join us for a 10-hour training for individuals, artists, educators, community leaders, non-profit professionals, and anyone interested in exploring the role of creative arts programming in personal growth and community-building.
This training covers best-practices for:
creating effective curriculum
developing a classroom model
strengthening teaching skills
program evaluation, and more!
We start the training with a personal mission statement process that helps us stay focused on the "why?" behind our work. Then, we move through program planning best practices, curriculum writing, and peer feedback opportunities while building community connections between participants. We also offer explorations of art-making & character development, asset-based relationships, and various creative reuse program ideas.
Registration is open!
