The family of the late Arthur “Artie the Artist” made a donation of art supplies to SCAD’s Annual Buzz Bus to supply local teachers with donated art materials. Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Buzz Bus program hosted its annual art supply giveaway last Thursday, June 8, 2017 at the Savannah Film Studios located at 2315 Louisville
Road The event is an opportunity for educators from Chatham County and local nonprofits to obtain a fantastic array of desirable art supplies. The donation period was scheduled to coincide with the end of the SCAD academic quarter, to better provide SCAD students with the opportunity to contribute.
“This year our supply donation includes a very special contribution of supplies donated by the family of the late Artie Milton, who was one of SCAD’s first graduates. It is truly a blessing that the young people of Savannah will be able to benefit from canvases, paints and other supplies that Artie had always intended to use to bring happiness to others,” said Erina Tandy Senior Director of Giving at SCAD.
Milton had a passion for art. Milton lost his battle with cancer last March.
