Art Supply Drive returns!

As kids enjoy their last few weeks of holidays, educators may be thinking about the best methods to deliver their lessons. And Orchid Burnside, co-founder of Art Supply Drive, is doing her part to help some of them.

Art Supply Drive began in 2013 and is now in its third year. The drive is a collaboration between the NAGB and Doongalik Studios, who, last year, supported three public schools – C.H. Reeves, R.M. Bailey and Central Andros High School.

In its third year, the art supplies drive continues to be held in August to facilitate donations. Supplies of all shapes and sizes are welcomed. Items received in the past include:

Coloring pencils

Sketch books



Teaching resources


Art Supply Drive also accepts monetary donations, of which “every last penny” is used to purchase additional materials, according to Burnside.

Donations can be dropped off at Doongalik Studios, on Village Road, or at the NAGB, on West and West Hill Streets. Anyone interested in supporting the drive is encouraged to contact the art galleries at 394-1886 (Doongalik) or 328-5800 (NAGB).
