There isn’t a lot of funding at our school for the art program. We have to have a volunteer sign up to go into the kids classrooms otherwise they wouldn’t have an art program. It makes me sad that schools are like that and that in a way we are lucky to have an arts program at all for the kids. To my children the art is one of their favorite things to do. They love to be creative. In addition to art they love to act and our elementary school does not have any theater, at least not at their age. So we have them in a Theater summer camp and they are having a blast.
They have done Peter Pan, Splat the Cat and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I’m just so proud of them and love how much fun they are having. Plus theater helps them be more confident and helps Zoe’s self esteem. All kids should have that chance.
I really think it’s important for kids to experience the arts, theater, music, all of them which is why I’ve decided to team up with Schoola and picked a school from a list they provided to help raise money for. I picked Yick Wo Elementary and their Goal: $25,000 to fund an art program.
Art can be one of the most important parts of a young student’s life. It teaches kids that it’s okay to be creative and take risks at school—not just in the art room, but in math, languages, and every other subject they study. The educational benefits of an art program are well known, but it’s still not covered by most public school budgets. The parents at Yick Wo Elementary make sure that their school’s students have art class anyway, and Schoola is forming a community to help them do it.
Donating to Schoola is quite easy. For every person who requests a Schoola donation bag via my unique referral code, Schoola will donate $1 to the school I selected to support.. PLUS – when you donate clothes and fill out your school information, $2 of every $5 made will go back to the school you chose to support.
