The Ben Gordon Center is in the process of kicking off their new Art Therapy program with clinician Michelle Costigan. The Open Studio Art Therapy group will give our clients a new approach to learn and process their emotions through art. We are in need of various supplies and could use your help.
Please see the list of needs below. Any items that you may be able to donate can be dropped off at the central office at the reception desk or to Michelle L at CSP. Arrangements can also be made for pick up if necessary. Donations will be taken til the end of June. Please call (815) 757-3488 or email Michelle L with any questions you may have. Thank you for your consideration and help.White drawing paper (various sizes – up to 18×24”) Colored construction paper Glue sticks Safety scissors Magazines, preferably with photos of diverse people (for collaging) Pencils Colored pencils Colored markers (non-scented – thick and fine-point) Oil pastels Chalk pastels Crayons Erasers Pencil sharpener (electric) Model Magic (classroom pack – 1 oz. packages) Hot glue gun Hot glue sticks Yarn Fabric scraps Tissue paper (colored) Cardboard scraps (cereal boxes, tissue boxes, etc) Masking tape 8 Drawing boards 2 large Rubbermaid containers 1 large portfolio Various embellishments, including: pipe cleaners buttons beads feathers
