CAST Grant Takes Students to PalletSmart

Student artists in FWCD’s chapter of the National Art Honor Society recently went to PalletSmart for a tour of their facilities and a hands-on workshop, thanks to a Supporting CAST grant. Students learned about PalletSmart’s business model, which involves upcycling used, wood pallets that would otherwise go to the landfill to make furniture, art, etc., from Lucas White, one of the company’s employees. Students also got to create a piece of wall-hanging art on a wood pallet.
