Help re-open the art room at Lonnie Burten Recreation Center

Recently, a group of Central artists, residents and Promise Neighborhood staff began renovating the art room at the Lonnie Burten Recreation Center. The group hopes to re-open the art room to the community in January, but is in need of some items and assistance.

The following items are needed for the opening of the art room:

  • Stools (about 15) for the students to sit onart-supplies-1324034_1280
  • 3 folding tables
  • 2 Cabinets with locks to store art supplies
  •  Someone to check the Kiln to get it in working order for pottery class
  • Repair work done on the walls in the hallway
  • Large plastic tubs/bins for storage and small ones for organization of markers and pencils, etc.
  • Paint: acrylic & for airbrushing
  • Art paint brushes
  • Trash Can
  • Rags for painting and clean-up
  • Paper towels

If you have items to donate or can be of assistance for some of the repair work, please contact Gwendolyn Garth at 216.339.0571 or gwendolyngarth@gmail.com.

The opening of the art room at Lonnie Burten Recreation Center is part of a larger community initiative to create a safer, more peaceful neighborhood.
