Ready for your daily art fix?

 While our building is closed, we’re keeping our online doors open. So you can gather here every single day for your artistic nourishment. If we could, we’d bring you the smell of paint on the palette. Enjoy yourself. 

We are so grateful to each of you who’s asking how you can support us. If your present circumstances allow, we welcome donations.

Art Kits

We are creating and distributing art kits while supplies last. We are working with Stowe Elementary School to distribute the art kits with school lunches and will also have some available on the front porch of the Helen Day Art Center. These are meant to help students at home who may not have access to art making supplies such as watercolors and a brush, glue sticks, sidewalk chalk, construction paper, white paper, tissue paper, and an activity sheet with DIY recipes for clay, paint. You can help spread the word. And if you can, please consider donating so we can offer more to our community. Did you know customized art kits come with our online classes? Sign up today!
