Help local teachers teach creatively!

Through partnership between Orange County Schools, the Hillsborough Arts Council, our generous drop-off sites, and volunteers, ArtCycle is a program that collects and distributes donations of art & school supplies in new or good condition to local classrooms and arts education programming.

On August 25, 2023, Last Fridays & the Art Walk will be specially themed around Arts Education, highlighting the importance of creative learning and honoring the dedication of educators committed to supporting it. 


We invite anyone able and joining us at August’s Last Friday to donate in support of tactile and creative learning for students in our area.
