****The Art Garage Updates****

**Project Worthmore Art Supply Drive: Art Donations Requested!**
The Art Garage is excited to be starting a partnership with [Project Worthmore](https://projectworthmore.org/), a wonderful organization based in Aurora, CO that works with refugee families in our community. We would love to supply them with small bags of art materials to give to children after an appointment or check-up at their onsite dental clinic!

If you’re interested in supporting our art supply drive going on through December, here is a list of supplies from the [Dollar Tree](https://www.dollartree.com/) (online shopping- in bulk) that we’d like to put in the bags:

REQUESTED ART SUPPLIES:
Little Fingers doodle pad (60 sheets)
Playskool jumbo crayons (set of 10)
Crafter’s Square 8 color watercolor set with brush
Jot washable glue sticks (8ct. pack)
Crayola pre-sharpened #2 pencils
Jot pencil sharpener and eraser sets
Crayola construction paper (30 sheet pack)
Westcott titanium bonded scissors 7”

These items can be shipped directly to the Art Garage 6100 E. 23rd Ave., Denver, CO, 80207 or you can drop them off at our place anytime. You can also pick up similar items from a brick and mortar store! There will be a drop off box located outside our door by our ceramics pick up shelf. We really appreciate your support for this wonderful organization!

**Laradon**
On Monday Nov. 1st, the Art Garage started an exciting partnership with [Laradon](https://www.laradon.org/).  Laradon’s Mission is to be an organization of excellence that provides superior, individualized services to children and adults with intellectual, developmental and other disabilities, supporting their independence in daily life and maximizing their full potential. We had a lot of fun creating oil pastel resist paintings and acrylic scrape paintings with two groups of eager artists!. Each week for 6 weeks we will do something new and have fun being creative.
