Drew Friedman is the gift that keeps giving.
The late restaurant owner and longtime arts supporter’s $1 million bequest to endow a Community Arts Center — a series of projects, rather than an actual building — has already funded several scholarships and programs for under-served students.
On Thursday afternoon, another installment of Art on the Beach brought youngsters to the Compo pavilion.
Led by Westport artist and educator Katherine Ross and her daughter Rebecca, the budding artists painted, drew and created collages.
They also talked about forming a collective for young artists in town. Thanks to Drew’s funds, all sessions would be free.
