Art Supplies

HEAL is most grateful for any donations received. Because the majority of the participants we work with are dealing with illness or impaired immune systems, HEAL can only accept art supplies that are in new, un-opened condition. Otherwise, we will accept cash donations, which will then be used to purchase art supplies.


Artist Canvas: We utilize professional-grade gallery wrapped canvas, on 1-1/2" extra-deep stretcher bars. Because our canvases are used for fundraising purposes, we utilize
pre-stretched and back-stapled to provide a clean appearance (no viewable staples along the side of the canvas). Our primary vendor for canvas is Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff. To see a sample of Joe’s Prime Really Good Extra-Deep Canvas, check out

The 4 sizes most utilized are: 24 x 30, 18 x 24, 16 x 20 and 14 x 18. Because each artist paints 2 canvases per session, we appreciate canvas in even quantities.

Acrylic Paints: We have used Apple Barrel brand and other quality acrylic brand paints offered at craft stores and other suppliers. For added special effects, the kids love acrylic paints with sparkle and glitter.

Acrylic Paint Mediums & Gessos: Gloss or Translucent Mediums, Extenders and Gessos for Acrylic Paints.

Acrylic Brush Sets: We use a variety of brush sizes depending on what the Artist Participant paints.

Krylon Acrylic Crystal Clear Finishing Protectant: Each painting is coated with a finishing protectant spray for archival quality and “cleanability.” This product contains the word acrylic on the front of the can.

Thank you for your interest to help support the HEAL art program. Without your support, our success is only a vision. We Sincerely Thank You!
