AtlantaArt.org is being developed as an art community portal that helps local business and citizens support the arts at their local Atlanta public schools and at the Boys and Girls Club of Atlanta. We will be adding a sponsors page and a donations page soon. 100% of all donations will go towards art supplies for local art programs. If you would like to donate supplies, please contact Audrey at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Examples of supplies that can be donated are cork board, small pieces of wood (about the size of a hand or smaller), boxes, pencils, paper, crayons, kilns, paint, fabric, wood, tools, lathe, scrap canvas, and the list goes on. Let us know what you have, and we will be more than willing to take any useful items off your hands.
If you would like to donate artwork to help the cause, please contact Audrey at email@example.com. We will be holding seasonal art shows starting Fall 2009 that will exhibit art created by students benefiting from the program. We will also have art donated by local artists for sale, to help raise funds for local art programs. We will have a newsletter set up soon so you can keep up to date with what’s going on in the local art community and what we’re doing to support it.
It’s our belief that through exercising our youth’s imaginations, the arts help students make new connections, transcend previous limitations, and think “outside the box.” Creativity is the key ingredient to solving problems that sometimes seem larger than life.
“"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand."” -Albert Einstein
