In Brief

The Pahrump Arts Council is seeking donations of instructional art materials, whether published media or videos for the Pahrump Community Library. Our goal is to provide budding artists of all ages the tools to learn new and/or different techniques on their own. If we can excite a new artist, they may then go on to join PAC, take a class at the Gallery, or join an affiliated group and everyone benefits.

Donations should be new or in excellent condition. The source of the donation will be identified with a bookplate label showing the affiliated group donating the item and contact information for the group and PAC.

Monetary donations to PAC, specifically earmarked for library materials, are also welcome. The Library can then purchase additional instructional art materials. Perhaps you or your group would like to sponsor a particular instructional book or video that you have found useful.
