We have been so fortunate this year to receive several grants to allow us:
1) to travel to an art museum
2) purchase a new ~$3k L&L Kiln
3) invite a guest speaker to present financial literacy in art to 72 art students.
***With much thanks and appreciation I want to express our sincerest gratitude to the following organizations who have made this possible for us.
Michigan Youth Arts-Arts and Culture Trek Grant- Made it possible for us to take a bus to visit the Grand Rapids Art Museum.
Cressy & Everett Donation- donated $400 toward the purchase of a new kiln.

FUN Financial Education Institute Grant- awarded $1000 toward a 2 Day workshop with Anthony Schaller of Schaller Gallery in St. Joseph, Mi. The presentation focused on the financial aspects of an artist: budget, book keeping, investing, savings account, insurance, retirement, etc.
