Artful Spirit Connection Collecting Art Supplies for Kids’ Art Kits Now through August 31, 2019

Artful Spirit Connection is collecting art supplies to fill art kits (large decorative paper bags).  We are need of those as well (at least 75 t0 100). This is an outreach to families in the Brewer area. Kids will have the opportunity to decorate their  kits and then fill them with selected art items of their choosing.

We distributed over 70 kits last year at Brewer Days, let’s see if we can do that again. Let’s get creative.

Artful Spirit Connection is an arts outreach program at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church. Its mission is to connect with its community using art as a hub/starting point. In this case, are is the hub of the wheel. The spokes of the wheel are the different neighborhoods, families, individuals, churches, and organizations in and around Brewer.
