Independent Living of Genesee County to offer free art materials

BATAVIA – Therapeutic art and literature will take center stage in the lobby of the Independent Living of the Genesee Region’s office at 113 Main St. at a ceremony scheduled for 2 p.m. Wednesday.

The Genesee group, through the efforts of the North Buffalo-based University Heights Art Association, has been selected to be a hub of inspiration and resources for those wishing to explore their artistic side, with an emphasis on disability-friendly activities.

The agency will unveil a self-serve kiosk, featuring packets of free art and literature supplies such as colored pencils, watercolor pencils, drawing (graphite) pencils, watercolor/ drawing paper, craft paper, origami paper, polymer clay and art-oriented audio books on CD.
