NCLAC Needs Your Help to Keep our Kids Creating!


The North Central Louisiana Arts Council is holding an Art Supply Drive and it needs your help!

Every year NCLAC works hard to provide year-round opportunities for kids of all ages to participate in art-inspired events, from making their own seasonal crafts and tie-dyed clothing, to basic drawing and painting classes.

NCLAC relies on donations to furnish most of its art supplies, and this summer it anticipates exhausting its supply as it holds a series of children’s arts and crafts projects at the Ruston’s Farmers Market, held each Saturday morning in downtown Ruston.

NCLAC needs unused packages of construction paper, drawing paper, newsprint paper, fabric markers, fine tip markers, fat tip markers, Sharpie markers, acrylic paint, watercolor paint, tempera paint, foam brushes, oil pastels, chalk pastels, scotch tape, masking tape, Elmer’s glue, glue sticks, and baby wipes. Any donation is very much appreciated, big or small!

Donations may be brought to the NCLAC tent at the Ruston Farmer’s Market from 8:30-11:30am on Saturdays, or to the Dixie Center for the Arts Lobby from 10am-2pm Monday-Thursday.

Please call 318-255-1450, or email if you have any questions.
