Art Supply Drive for At-Risk Kids!

SO...do you have any extra art supplies lying around?  My answer is...why, yes I do!  The shot above is of some of the shelves in my studio years ago.   There's a great solution if your studio looks anything like mine does...read on...

I've posted about this in previous years, and with Back to School comes my dear friend Melody's art supply drive.  Melody is a fabulous artist and each year she volunteers her time to teach Art Journaling to kids in some Southern CA public schools.  Since she cannot afford all the necessary supplies alone, we are asking for your help if possible.  You can read about Melody's vision, see some of the kids' artwork & find out how to donate here on her blog

Thanks for taking the time to read about Melody's classes & please help if possible.  The kids so appreciate being able to express themselves in their journals.  Art programs are being cut in so many public schools...it was always one of my favorite classes & I've already sent one big flat rate box off to Melody...and I'm working on at least one more to send before this year's November 6 deadline. 

Many thanks from Melody & the kids!
