Help continue a special afterschool art program at Woodlin Elementary School

About the Project

For the past 8 years, CREATE Arts Center has offered a free afterschool art program at Woodlin Elementary School for students who need extra support at school. The classes use an art-based curriculum to help students improve their academic performance, language and literacy skills, peer relationships and creativity. The students are selected with the help of the school’s reading specialist. 

Each class starts with a healthy snack, story time and journaling; students then work on art projects. At the end of the session, students have an art show for parents and school staff.

The Winter session of this class is underway, but because of changes in grant funding, the Spring session is in jeopardy.

Just $250 per student will bring this high-quality afterschool program to 16 more Woodlin students this Spring.

If we raise $4000 by March 25, the program can continue uninterrupted with two full groups at Woodlin this Spring. Please consider making a donation. Any amount will make a difference for these students and every donation will be matched $1 for $1!
