The Lake Country Art Gallery believes highly in the power of art and creative expression to feed one’s soul, activate new insights and transcend everyday experiences.
Through the creation of small, mobile art kits, the Lake Country Art Gallery’s “The Gift of Art - a giving campaign” will bring art and creative expression to those who might not be able to otherwise access art making and creative outlet opportunities; to those who might most benefit from it.
