Last year, artists from across the country came together to reach Hamilton County Elementary schools without art programs. With community support, we inspired over 2,000 children to imagine, create, and make. Several schools participated in the Scenic City Art Car Creation contest with Alpine Crest students winning the Golden Gnome award and a signed copy of "Arthur Zarr's Amazing Art Car" by Cathey Graham Nickell. Special thanks to our friends at Rock City for partnering with us to provide this awesome award. photo: Alpine Crest principal, Teresa Rollins (on left), accepting the Golden Gnome Award for their students' art car entries.
This year, our goal is to reach over 3,000 children in seven schools. It costs $2,000 to bring two artists in for this amazing art experience for a local school on April 27th PLUS a free public art event for everyone on April 28th. You can help us reach our goal of raising $14,000 to reach seven schools and bring fourteen professional artists in from around the country for the Scenic City Art Car Weekend. Every tax deductible contribution of $5 covers gets one child closer to receiving this amazing, interactive in-school experience.
