    New WOAC Fundraiser

    West Orange Community Coloring Book

    created by our own WOAC Members


    To help raise much needed funds for the West Orange Arts Council so that we may continue to provide our community with dynamic and meaningful art programs, we are launching the “West Orange Community Coloring Book,” a coloring book all about West Orange that will be enjoyed by both children and adults, and is derived from photographs taken by our very own WOAC members.

    Send us your best images showing life and living in West Orange and we will create a coloring book filled with the pages of your photographs

    We hope to have it available for purchase at our fund raiser in October , so please send us your images no later than August 15. We plan to sell the book for $15.00 and all proceeds will go to the West Orange Arts Council.

    This opportunity is open to all West Orange Arts Council members and their families (if you are under 18 , please make sure that your parent or guardian has given you permission to participate)
