ANN ARBOUR, Mich. – Up-and-coming artists can support two Washtenaw County organizations while creating masterpieces.
Through Sunday, March 6, proceeds from the purchase of pre-prepared art kits, ArtBoxes, will go towards similar kits donated to Wonderfool Productions and the Peace Neighborhood Center, Ann Arbor Art Center said in a statement.
Varying in price, ArtBoxes are created by the Art Center at 117 W. Liberty St. and are filled with supplies for DIY projects like designing board games, decorating fairy doors, and painting on pottery. Budding artists follow step-by-step instructions to create unique works of art.
For over 10 years, Wonderfool Productions has hosted annual FoolMoon, FestiFools and ypsiGLOW events in downtown Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. He organizes community luminary and puppet workshops, online events and tutorials in preparation for events.
The creative organization will bring the donated kits, containing paper lantern figures, to the Peace Neighborhood Center in March. The non-profit North Maple Road provides transitional housing, case management services, family services, youth support groups and summer camps to area families.
Ann Arbor Art Center previously partnered with Ele’s Place Ann Arbor for its “Buy One Give Some” donations, which provided 55 embossed copper ArtBoxes to grieving teenagers to honor their loved ones.
