SNAP schedules arts, crafts fair

October 5, 2006

Special Needs Advocacy Partnership of Leavenworth County, previously known as the ARC of Leavenworth, is planning an "Art From the Heart" arts and crafts display and sale next month.

The event is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at the Heritage Center, 109 Delaware St., Leavenworth.

People with developmental disabilities have completed paintings, photography projects and other crafts for display and sale.

The event's promoters say the artists' emphasis has been on creativity and fun, not formal instruction.

Participants will receive a portion of sales, with the remaining going toward the not-for-profit Special Needs Advocacy Partnership for recreational and support activities.

Also available will be donated items, including a barn painting by local artist Debbie Tomlinson, a wall-hanging quilt, two crocheted afghans and outdoor benches.
