Mrs. K. from Chicago IL is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindergarten Artists . . . on the Road Again

The cost of a bus to the Art Institute of Chicago is $179, including <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

My 22 kindergarten students at Hibbard School will have the wonderful benefit again this school year of a classroom volunteer who will provide weekly art lessons and projects relating to works displayed at Chicago's Art Institute. The volunteer has expressed a desire to take the children on a trip to the art museum, to view -- in person -- the works they will have studied in class, and to encourage their future interest in art. Museum staff and resources are available to her for the trip, but funding for the bus is not. Nearly all the Hibbard families are low-income and would have difficulty paying the cost per child to pay for the bus. It is my hope that an art-loving donor would be able to provide funds to take my enthusiastic kindergarten artists on the road to the Art Institute! Thank you in advance for your consideration of this project.
