Art Kits for Kids Distribution
It was a fabulous holiday art material drive. Thanks to your donations, the Questa Creative Council was able to give out over $1,600 worth of fun, FREE creative art materials to local youth on December 18 through 21. Thanks also goes out to the Questa Public Library for providing the space and distributing the goodies. Art materials included acrylic paint sets, canvases, brushes, watercolor sets, watercolor paper, sketchbooks, oil pastels, crayons, and sidewalk chalk. Again, thank you for helping us make this a colorful holiday season
