I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way-things I had no words for. Georgia O'Keefe

History

Sherrie Zeitlin Executive Director

The ART RESOURCE CENTER was incorporated in 2004 by Sherrie Zeitlin, a fiber and ceramic artist, who has been working in the arts community for the past 30 years.  She has an MFA in clay from Arizona State University and maintains a clay studio in the Phoenix area.  Working as an artist in the schools, Sherrie completed over 50 residencies in the greater metropolitan Phoenix area working through the Arizona Commission on the Arts, and other funding sources to bring the arts and the making of art to thousands of children and adults.

It was during her years in the schools and community centers that the idea to collect and to give away supplies was generated.  The lack of materials and funds available initiated the structure by which THE ART RESOURCE CENTER was founded.

By recycling art worthy materials for creative minds, THE ARC is filling the ever widening funding gap of nonprofits by providing quality materials to continue the passion we call art.
