NESBA donations request Art Supply Project: Horace Mann School for Deaf

From Linda Oliver:

Dear NESBA Members,

Organizing your studio? Wondering what to do with extra paper and paints? We've got the answer!
Sarah Roche recently presented a workshop for senior art students at a local school for the deaf. I participated as teaching assistant. (See her article on p.29 of The Botanical Artist, June 2011.) This was an eye-opening experience in many ways... Studying art is a real challenge for deaf students, who must constantly shift between teacher demonstrations and the signing of verbal information.

Further complicating this situation is an extreme lack of art materials, from the basics on up!
Sarah and I would very much like to offer support to these students by collecting any art materials which NESBA members can offer. Paper, paints and other media, brushes, etc. Items needn't be brand new, so long as they are in usable condition. Also, please donate any EXTRA SUPPLIES you already have; no need to purchase items!

Art supply donations may be DROPPED OFF at:

The Wellesley College Friends of Horticulture Visitors Center
The FOH office is open from at least 10 am - 3 pm Monday-Friday. If they have a class that starts/ends outside those hours, the office is open while class is in session.

OR
DROPPED OFF at:
Joyce Westner’s home (leave on front porch if she is not home)

OR
MAILED/SHIPPED to, or DROPPED OFF at:
Sarah Roche's home (leave on porch if she is not home),

Any contributions will be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your support in making this project a success!
*The WCFH Visitors Center will accept your drop-off donations through the end of October.
Thank you!!
Linda
