Innovation. Design. Education. Art.

Inspiring the next generation of mindful creatives.

IDEA Collective is a portable metalworking classroom that encourages interconnectivity between grades by creating collaborative art projects inspired by school pride, community, nature, and beyond. Through hosting art workshops, IDEA promotes traditional and contemporary metalworking techniques, hands-on learning, teamwork, and sustainability. Art and design encompass everything in daily life.  We believe it's our role to share that vision.
