School Art Fundraising Project.

Art created by students to raise money for school trips, programs, events and school supplies.

About our School Art Fundraising Project.

Psychologists have determined that only 7-10% of human communication is verbal. This means that about 90% of our communication is through body language, emotion, and visual stimulus or images.
Keeping this fact in mind, we are greatly reducing our capacity to communicate as a society when we cut the visual arts, graphic arts etc., out of schools and the job market. Artistic skills that we have deemed impractical are exremely valuable forms of communication when logic, language barriers or reason inhibit transferring a message to people. Remember cave drawings? They were the first graphic arts, the first form of communication, because any tribe or any person, even if they spoke a completely different language could still comprehend them.
"Artistic expression exercises different pathways in the brain, allowing speech to function outside the narrow bandwidth of logic, helping people document feelings and awareness states that cannot be accessed through reason." ~ Linda Hohanov, author of The Tao of Equus and founder of Epona Therapeutic Horse Therapy.

As Pablo Picasso said, " The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." It is a means of escape from the mechanical life we live in, a means of inspiration and beauty to surround ourselves with.

Great art inspires us, no matter how subtle; it reminds us of all the things that make us human and not machines because great art incites emotion, feelings, messages; all things a computerized machine or robot can never replicate. If we lose the arts, we lose that which makes us human. We lose beauty, emotional stimulus, creativity, passion, expression, humanness. Art is culture.

The proper way to view a work of art is not to look at it superficially by only looking at the surface of it and then saying to yourself, "Oh, that's a pretty picture." The correct way to appreciate a work of art is while looking at it, you get in touch with, and pay attention to, the feelings it is provoking in you. Be it good or bad, it awakens your soul in some way.

ART IN ACTION:

CEOs across the country agree that the skill needed most in our future workforce is creativity.  And in an ever move visual society, it is clear that visual literacy will also play an important role in the jobs of the future.   Art in Action builds these very skills, while igniting students’ thinking and creativity by providing engaging visual arts programs through which they learn art history, appreciation, and skills. Comprehensive art programs like ours help to close the achievement gap by making the skills and the joys of art accessible to all students – students who might not otherwise have access to the types of experiences and opportunities the arts elicit. Today we impact nearly 46,000 students and train more than 3,000 teachers annually in nearly 200 schools nationwide

TEACHERS - We can help you raise funds for school projects or supplies.

If you are a teacher looking for a way to raise funds for school projects, trips, supplies or events, we've got just the thing. We can help you set up a student art fundraising event or web page in which your students create art that is reproduced on goods like T-shirts, coffee mugs, tote bags, notebooks, baseball caps, greeting cards etc and sold to raise money for anything you need.

Your students will get a huge sense of accomplishment at seeing their work reproduced and people love to buy artwork done by students, so this makes a great way to raise money. Our parent company, Redstone Promotional Communications, will handle all the Ecommerce details and design a web page or event specifically for your school or class to sell their items.

 

Student art can be put on just about anything and the promotional products that you can then sell to raise money are something most people need or can use. It's wearable art or usable art. Unlike selling candy bars or cases of fruit, or car washes as school fundraising ideas, people are more inclined to purchase fundraising items if they are also something useful.

We know teachers don't have a great deal of time. That is why we will set up everything for you. All you have to do is get your student's art copied or sent to us and we will do the rest. We will set up an Ecommerce web page for your class or school that basically runs itself. Any money your web page makes can be directly deposited into a specific bank account or paypal account for your class or school.
