New Partnership Helps Ai Sacramento Support Local Art Teachers
April 17, 2017
According to AdoptAClassroom.org, over 15 million students don’t have the resources they need to succeed in school, and, in the face of funding constraints, teachers spend more than $1.6 billion every year out of pocket to stock their classrooms.
To help offset these costs, The Art Institute of California—Sacramento, a campus of Argosy University, has partnered with AdoptAClassroom.org. Working together, we are helping to fund the purchase of project supplies and needs for local Sacramento art teachers and classrooms.
Ai Sacramento President John Andersen recently visited his alma mater, Bear River High School, where he presented teacher Elizabeth Jens with a check for $600 in support of this need. Ms. Jens and her students plan to utilize these extra funds to restock their art supplies and to more fully explore and develop their art projects.
President Andersen also visited Natomas High School to present teacher Cindy Peiper with a $600 check, with which Ms. Peiper plans to start a self-identity art project with her students.
