In addition to teaching Middle School English, this year I am also Director of Development at Virginia Beach Friends School. My first project in development is to coordinate a Silent Art Auction to benefit our school’s art, music and drama programs.
I’m looking for artists willing to donate a piece of their work to be auctioned off during the event. We’re expected more than 200 people from the Hampton Roads area.
All artists will have their piece featured on the VBFS website along with a link to their own website.
As an artists, I’m sure you’ll agree with me that the value of integrating the arts into students’ daily school day is immeasurable. In addition to providing children with outlets for creativity and self-expression, countless studies have shown the links between exposure to the arts and enhanced academic performance.
The school website is: www.friends-school.org Have a look at the terrific programs we offer. I’d love to have you help us continue to be a school where the arts flourish!
