Help us to fill the cinch bags for elementary students this spring! As we take Art Makes Me Smart. programming into the classrooms and after-school clubs, we also want to provide some basic art supplies for the students to take home. Our goal is that each participating child will receive a bright, neon green Art Makes Me SmART. bag thanks to ArtFX Embroidery and Screenprinting. Now we need to fill them! Desired supplies: crayons, colored pencils/sharpener, colored markers, water color or acrylic paints, brushes, sketch pads, glue sticks. For many of our city’s children, the only place they can access art supplies is at school.
In February, Michael’s Arts & Crafts Store hosted an art supplies drive that resulted in supplies for about 50 students. Our goal is to equip 350 students. You can organize an art supplies drive at your workplace, church, social organization, etc. or simply bring a personal donation to our office at 1701 South 17th Street, Lincoln, NE 68502. Please call to confirm your drop off time: 402-434-2787.
