ArtWorks / Art Supplies for At-Risk Youth / Call for Donations

Something powerful happens when you give at-risk youth a chance to create public artwork. They find a positive way to express themselves. They feel more connected to their peers and communities. And they gain real-world skills that prepare them for the future.

Our group was originally founded to help the SODO Business Association clean up the busway in Seattle’s industrial zone. The plan was to create vibrant murals that would enrich the surroundings and discourage graffiti and litter. It was such a success, this area is now known as the SODO Urban Art Corridor.

Help ArtWorks Gather Needed Supplies:

- 6-20 feet ladders
- Working scanner/copier/fax
- Healthy snacks for youth
- Paper products: toilet paper/paper towels/cups
- Smocks for volunteers and youth (large tees, aprons, etc)
- Containers with lids (to keep mixed colors)
- Rubber gloves
- Saran wrap
- Art supplies of any kind (crayons, paints, canvases, brushes, pastels, etc)

For more information or to make a donation contact Kathleen Warren at kathleen@urbanartworks.org, 206 292 4142.
