Art Supplies for Schools
August 1, 2018 - September 30, 2018
It’s back to school time! Support the students in your community!
Spark students’ creativity by helping to fund the materials needed for quality and engaging arts programs throughout Colorado’s schools.
Think 360 Arts for Learning, the Colorado affiliate of Young Audiences, has 55 years of experience delivering arts education programs to K-12 students, teachers, and communities through performing, visual, digital, and literary arts. Think 360 Arts’ intrinsic services sparks imagination and promotes personal and social development, which are the essential skills for a collaborative, communicative, and innovative workforce. We believe that the arts are for ALL and we aim to foster a community that embraces the arts as a fundamental tool to enhance learning.
Unfortunately, one of the obstacles Think 360 Arts consistently faces with bringing these quality arts programs to students is the overwhelming expense of the art supplies. By making a donation towards arts supplies for programs in schools – from paint to pastels, digital art to writing materials, drums to canvases – you will not only be providing fully paid supplies for their arts education programs, but you will be giving the gift of art, creativity, excitement, culture, inclusion, expression, and innovation to thousands of youth in our neighborhoods across the state.
“In each of the poems my classmates and I wrote, we all had different ways of expressing and commanding our thoughts to portray a message. We learned so many new thing that can help us later in life to get our message across the world,” said a student from Fort Logan Northgate who participated in poetry and mural residencies led by Teaching Artists Molina Speaks and Tony Ortega. Your donation will give students the tools that they need to feel empowered to use their voices in creative ways to make positive change.
Won’t you consider giving the gift of creative learning that will change a child’s life and strengthen our community? Your contribution is tax deductible and you will be sent a receipt from Facebook. DONATE TODAY!
