DON’T CHUCK THOSE MARKERS. 15 pounds of dead markers that will NOT end up in landfills or our oceans. Did you know that Crayola has a program called ColorCycle? Crayola ColorCycle will accept all brands of plastic markers, not just Crayola markers. That includes dry erase markers & highlighters. If you collect the dead markers, they’ll send you a free shipping label & you can ship them back to Crayola to be recycled!
Crayola and schools across North America are banding together to help kids understand the importance of their role in protecting the environment. That’s why we launched Crayola ColorCycle. Through this initiative, students in K-12 schools across the continental United States and parts of Canada can collect and repurpose used Crayola markers.
ColorCycle is also a great opportunity for teachers and their students to explore eco-friendly practices. Specially developed standards-based lesson plans are available to enrich instruction and promote lively class discussions.

For some students, homeschooling is as much a part of the American way of life, just as attending a public school is for everyone else. These home-based education centers are just another approach to learning that is equally cool, in and of themselves! The Creative Arts Studio has enjoyed working with students in all age groups and from several school campuses in the Royal Oak, Michigan, and surrounding, Detroit metro school districts over the years. Adding to this incredible experience of working with so many of our friends in the public schools, has been the privilege of working with our homeschooled students and parents in their creative and artistic pursuits!
The Ultimate Homeschooler Field Trip Outing…
For our homeschooled friends and their mentor/teachers, the Creative Arts Studio in the eclectic town of Royal Oak, Michigan offers the ultimate, homeschool field trip experience! From our family to yours, we welcome you out to our do-it-yourself studio workshop for an experience that you and your students will draw inspiration from for years to come! Here at our home, we invite you to come and let your artistic talents float freely in this vast ocean of creative possibility!
A Classroom like no other!
Through such art forms as canvas painting, wheel-throwing, mosaics, glass fusing, pottery painting, wax hands, Raku pottery and a multitude of other creative expressions – by having your homeschool outing at the Creative Arts Studio, it may very well be one of those rare, defining moments in your student’s extended education that helps mold him or her into the amazing individuals they are already becoming…The Creative Arts Studio is a learning center like no other, where hands-on is the homework and creativity is the classroom… here in our class, we encourage you to let your imaginations soar to new, unprecedented heights of artistic expression!
Ideas in abundance…
Homeschooling projects can quickly challenge even the most imaginative among us. Some in the homeschool circuit have personally experienced just how quickly they can run out of ideas. This is why the Creative Arts Studio, the Motown, Detroit area’s premier do-it-yourself studio – would sincerely enjoy working with you and your students on becoming your next field trip or class outing destination!
From our home to you, we welcome you “home”!
We are certain that every homeschooler will find our home – a welcome new addition to their homeschooled, educational experience! At our home studio, there is no shortage of creative ideas for you and your homeschoolers to experience art, with all its myriad of expressions and in its fullest wonder. The act and art of creating something with one’s own hands, is perhaps, one of the finest displays of wonder possible – like that as only a hand-crafted piece of pottery or painting could provide. Let the Creative Arts Studio’s educational experience help define the moment’s in you and your student’s ongoing development that will inspire their imaginations and mold their memories for years to come!
