About The Art Material Swap
The Art Material Swap is like a traditional clothing swap. To participate, simply bring some unused or lightly used art material in good condition that will be placed on a table for people to ‘swap’, and pick up some materials that someone else is no longer interested in.
*Please note: Not all material can be accepted, and items should be in a useable and clean condition. Though many items can be used as an art supply we would like to encourage materials that would be used more readily by an art student. Pens, Paper, Paint, Paint Brushes, Markers, Unused Small Canvases, charcoal, clay, conte, glue, ink pads, pastels, pencil crayons, tape etc. Please limit the number of materials for the swap. When the program is over, the leftover materials will be collected by the AGA, and disbursed or disposed of, so please be mindful when submitting materials to the swap.
