We will be hosting our 5th annual scholarship fundraiser next March!
Specific date – TBA

Please start thinking about contributing to our fundraising “garage sale”! All funds raised create scholarships for local graduating senior students who intend on furthering their education in art. We ask that you drop off any used supplies right before we hold the garage sale in March. Our storage space is SO limited, and it’s difficult for us to store all your wonderful donated items.

Much to our dismay, Prismacolor has decided to discontinue their line of NUPASTELS 🙁 We know how many of you use these pastels so be sure to come in and get your favorite colors while you can!
