Take Out Art!
making a difference one kit at a time!
Take Out Art is a special Arts Alpharetta initiative which supplies free art kits for children in our community.
Arts Alpharetta gave away 300 free art kits to children in our area last year when the pandemic shut down our community.
Parents were able to drive up (contact-free) to retrieve free kits complete with all of the materials needed for children to create 3-10 different activities at home.
In December, we collaborated with public school counselors to offer these beautiful kits specifically to underserved children in the area whose parents might not be able to respond to our summer social media outreach. These elementary counselors were instrumental in helping us achieve our goal and said that the number one requested items from children in need or in transitional housing is art supplies.
Please consider a gift today to Arts Alpharetta in support of this program.

Arts Alpharetta Volunteers gave out 75 FREE art kits for kids at the Family Fun Day on Saturday, October 9th.
“The students are going to be so excited to receive these! The ones who received these in December felt like they’d won a prize. These help our students so much.”— Chris Emerson, counselor at Creek View Elementary
“We get offers for things for kids all the time but they come with ‘strings attached’ or tasks for us to complete, so we turn those down. We love Take Out Art because you just GIVE us these resources, and all we have to do is give them to our students. And we’ve got them in plenty of time to distribute thoughtfully and we love this project! It’s so good for our kids!” - quote from a school counselor
