An art class at Bradwell Institute received donations for hands-on projects from a network of anonymous donors.
“I am proud to announce that the sculpture class at Bradwell Institute has received funding for the second time from the organization,,” BI art teacher Brooke Reyna said.
Donorschoose is designed for teachers in need and funded by anonymous donors.
“After excessive budget cuts, I was faced with the decision to eliminate hands-on art projects, or resort to fundraising efforts,” Reyna said. “A fellow teacher introduced me to, and the rest is history.”
She estimated that in the past six months the program has received 500 pounds of clay and batik supplies valued at $300.
“Numerous students are never afforded the opportunity of being exposed to three-dimensional art mediums ...” she said. “Generous donors have given my students the opportunity to get their hands dirty in the name of education.”
