Crothersville man seeks donations of art supplies for new studio


A Crothersville resident and business owner has decided to give back locally for his birthday.

A couple of years ago, Kyle McIntosh asked everyone to stop by his shop, Beauty from Ashes Tattoo Parlor, and drop off hygiene products for Crothersville students. The school has a room that helps with hygiene products, clothes and food. He had a great response with hundreds of items donated.

This year, he is asking his "community heroes" to be the change again.

McIntosh, whose birthday is Tuesday, is seeking art supply donations for The Happy Tree Art Studio that has opened inside the new location of his business, 201 N. Armstrong St., Crothersville. The art studio was the idea of Crothersville student Zoey Prince, and she recently received a grant to make it happen.

Art supplies can include colored pencils, pencils, glue sticks, paintbrushes, paint, construction paper, etc. They can be dropped off at the shop during business hours.

"It can be one pencil or 500," McIntosh said. "Every donation big or small will help encourage/inspire our youth and adults to create and pursue those creative dreams."
