Call to Artists-and Young Artists!
Aetna & Hartford Performs Arts Supply Drive
Keeping ART in HARTford schools, a partnership between Hartford Performs and Aetna.
Aetna's Summer Associates just completed an Art Supply Drive benefiting Hartford public school art teachers. Now, we are asking YOU to continue to support this drive which runs through National Arts Day on September 12, 2018.
The arts are a critical part of any student’s learning. Drawing, painting, sculpting, and collaging help kids express themselves. Art lets them tell their stories; giving them voice when they might not have words. Art also encourages creativity – and creativity is the #1 skill employers say they need in their future workforce. Sadly, many public school teachers rarely have the art supplies they need to give their students the kind of varied and vibrant arts experiences they need.
How do you donate?
Then review these tips and resources:
• This list consists of the "need" that Arts Teachers have expressed through a district wide survey;
