$2,000 to Local Schools

Jan 29, 2017 10:00PM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

Pictured are Kindergarteners at Morello Park Elementary School (Clara Wojcik in front left) with their teacher, Janine Reed, one of this year’s recipients of the grants.


The Martinez Arts Association recently awarded approximately $2,000 in grants to 12 local teachers to fund art projects in their classrooms. Teachers requested funds to support projects such as murals, tiles, and even butcher paper for “mummification” of students. Students will receive supplies for digital arts, as well as drawing boards, sketchpads, easels, paint, and videos.

 

MAA donates 15% of its sales from the gallery toward these grants, and this year funds were supplemented by Shell Martinez Refinery. Supporting art in the schools is a primary mission of Martinez Arts Association. The grants support teachers and help students benefit from enhanced classroom activities.
