2012 Art Supply Drive starts this weekend! 

it's that time again...

The 2nd Annual ATL Citywide Art Supply Drive

is JUNE 15th- AUGUST 31st!

 

JOIN THE LAUNCH THIS SATURDAY JUNE 16th with the WESTSIDE ARTS WALK



presented by: The Creatives Project (TCP) and The Addo Foundation

Donate new and gently used art supplies at participating galleries & businesses this summer to benefit 2012-13 outreach initiatives through TCP's Community Arts Program.

last year's donations knocked our socks off!

  Over twenty galleries, businesses, and hundreds of donors helped raise thousands of dollars worth of art supplies for Atlanta's youth! These were donated to the young artists at One Love Generation, an afterschool art mentorship program housed at the Goat Farm.


This year CAP plans to expand the impact of it's outreach and the drive to include other invaluable programs that struggle with resources.

let's do it again!
