  1. I have art supplies I have wanted to share with area school teachers. My daughter had so many middle and high school art instructors who gave her motivation. On hand supplies: beads (seed size to large pieces. Paper, envelopes for card making and declopage, fabric and acrylic paints. Just want to make sure it goes to someone deserving. Lots of people in these articles.
