Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Project

Art inspires children to explore their emotions and experiences while building their confidence and self-esteem. This can be the only outlet some students have to express themselves in a positive and productive way. For many students, art is a powerful tool to communicate feelings and connect to the outside world. Art in education has been shown to benefit students across the academic spectrum.

Your donation of watercolor sets may well subsidize and inspire the next Picassos, van Gogh's, Georgia O'Keefes, and Michael Angelos.

Education is supposed to be more than ABC's and 123's. Children deserve to learn about the arts. It benefits all of society!
