files/pictures/picture-35.jpgThe School of Art at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, through the offices of NASAD The National Association of Schools of Art and Design, an organization that accredits art and design programs, has issued a call for art supplies to help the children and artists affected by Hurricane Katrina.
The supplies will go to children and adults now living in shelters throughout the Baton Rouge area. The supplies will hopefully serve as a morale booster for children attending the now over crowded and under funded schools in the area in addition to allowing local artists the means to rebuild their careers in the wake of losing their lifes work.
Any art supplies, especially drawing pads, sketchbooks, pencils, markers, watercolor sets, crayons, charcoal, printmaking supplies, sculpture tools, papers, rulers, t-squares and anything else that is not toxic or dangerous (e.g. oil paint chemicals) is sought.
All donations can be sent directly to the School of Art office at the address below.
