About this Event

The Northwest CT Arts Council is partnering with the American Mural Project to host a special Arts Night Out/ Art Gives Back event on Thursday, December 12th. Arts Night Out has been so successful this year that we wanted to hold an Art Supply Drive to further excite and involve the community. We are excited to announce that all art supplies donated at this event will go directly to the visual arts programs at the Litchfield ARC (LARC) and the Winsted Area Child Care Center (WACCC). As part of our mission, we want to continue promoting all kinds of art-making as essential promoters of mental health and well-being. We anticipate that an Art Supply Drive will be a yearly holiday Arts Council-hosted event.

Like our usual Arts Nights Out events, there will be hors d'oeuvres, wine and beverages for attendees, in addition to networking, community drawing, and music. Bring your business cards, brochures, any info about your business to share, and a friend!
