Donate your unused art materials to the AOH Art Materials Bank (please note, this is no longer available)

Do you have drawers full of old art materials? Lots of people do! Artists Open Houses offer you the perfect way to clear out your cupboards and help artists in need.

Many Open Houses include artists who have experienced periods of homelessness or are vulnerably housed, as well as those in recovery from drug and alcohol issues, artists with learning disabilities and those with mental health issues. Artists Open Houses is partnering with St Luke’s Church, Prestonville, to create an Art Materials Bank. The bank will then be accessible for groups and individuals to collect and make use of these materials.

Everyone is invited to donate art materials, such as paints, inks, brushes, crayons, paper, collage materials and anything else that could be of use to all marginalised artists in the city.

You can drop off you spare art materials to the reception centre at St Luke’s Church:
Tuesdays–Fridays, 9.30am–1pm

You will find the Art Materials Bank in the St Luke’s Church gallery: on entering the church at the main entrance in Old Shoreham Road, just follow the stairs upwards, past the AOH banners, and you will see Art Materials storage area.

Items requested include:
paper, card, board
paints, inks
brushes, crayons, pencils etc.
photographic materials
3D, collage
