Dear art backers, I am sorry to say that this project did not meet its funding goal. However, I will be holding the classes for kids, but once again, I will be donating my time. I ran a "Groupon" to advertise the art camp and because I only get 1/4 of the original price that way, I will only get enough to pay my staff and maybe my materials. Oh well. Live and learn.
If you are still interested to support art education, I am also trying to get Kickstarter funding for a class for seniors. It is called, "The Arts Engage the Brain." The purpose is to improve brain fitness for seniors though exposure to new activities. The arts are perfect for that. Plus, I find that it energizes the seniors as they find that they are more creative than they ever thought. Who says art education is only for children :)? For some seniors, it will provide a new hobby and reason for living. I put a very low funding goal to be sure that it can be met, but it has only a short time for exposure as the class is coming up soon.
I would love it if you want to apply your refund from the children's art camp to the class for older adults. And THANK YOU, again, for your support!
