Dear Friends of Art in Action,
“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” – Desmond Tutu
We hope this message finds you and your families healthy and safe during this unsettling time. For those in our community who are dealing with difficulties and illness, we hold you in our hearts. We are grateful to the teachers, docents, parents, and guardians who are working to provide some degree of normalcy, stability, and comfort for our children.
When the news came that schools were shifting to online distance learning, we opened free online lessons, created DIY art projects, and provided a list of art education resources. All your encouraging responses and creative ideas continue to inspire us! If you have suggestions about how we can continue to support our AiA community, we would love to hear from you, email us: artinaction at artinaction dot org.
“Creativity takes courage.” – Henri Matisse
Even more now, Art in Action must continue to provide an art curriculum that empowers students to develop their creativity, self-expression, resilience and courage. Because we know that art is essential for building the leaders of the tomorrow, we are implementing measures to weather these difficult times by seeking additional funding sources, developing new ways to deliver our program to students, and we are asking for your support. Please consider supporting Art in Action with a donation. Together, we will move forward through this challenging time.
We wish you well.
