• The art room welcomes your donations! Some supplies on the list are recyclable materials commonly found around the home, while others are supplies you may be willing to donate. Throughout the year, many art projects will be created from the reuse and re-purposing of everyday common objects. If you have other unique items that are not on the list but think they could be used in art, do not hesitate to contact me. We appreciate any donations to use in class throughout the year. We are very creative artists and can find a use for most things!
