Description: Join us for an art supply drive to benefit Pleasant View Elementary School in Golden, Colorado. The school’s art budget is extremely limited this year: the district allocated only $1 per student. Traditional materials like paintbrushes and markers are needed, but so are silverware, bike parts, and other household items. Students will use these objects to make sculptures on the Nature Path behind Pleasant View. Foothills Art Center invites the community to bring art supplies and cash donations to Foothills Art Center or Pleasant View Elementary School. Donations will be collected through Sunday August 30. ART SUPPLY WISHLIST Construction paper Silverware Drills/drill bits Colored pencils Wooden spoons Metal and wood scraps Markers Bowls Shovels Paint brushes Mixers/blenders Rakes Nontoxic paint Hardware Cash donations also accepted.
