Extras for Creative Learning (ExCL) is one of my favorite places. Yes, I've lost more than an hour *and* I have bloody hands from loading up all the wood, tile and paper into my car. But I saved about $1,000 and a bunch of landfill space and (most importantly) my students are going to be so excited for all the new supplies!
p.s. ExCL is apparently about to lose their space in the basement of Boston Latin Academy. Please write to your local councilman to make sure they find a new permanent home. It is such an invaluable resource to art teachers and artists!!!
