Thanks to a generous donation to our Art Academy, we’ve been able to create and deliver kits of art supplies to our Associates! Each kit contains supplies for a variety of projects – paintbrushes, watercolor paint, oil pastels, colored pencils, glue, a mask, and paper for sketching and painting.
Following the assembly of these kits, Pastimes Community Support Staff delivered them to our Associates’ homes, including our three residences. Our Associates were so excited to see our staff members – we can only imagine how big their smiles were behind their masks!
Since March, our Art Academy has transitioned to a virtual format, allowing our Associates to express themselves and combat feelings of isolation. With these supplies, our Associates will be able to create paintings, sketch illustrations, and craft custom masks by following the instructions of our Art Academy instructor, Rachelle.
We look forward to sharing the finished projects our Associates create with their new art supplies!
