Collaboration is Key
Saturday, June 3, 1:30 – 4:30pm @ Gallery One
This “make and take” station will feature the work of BAM (Because Art Matters) a volunteer, school based arts program that brings art lessons to all elementary school students K-5 to the Cle Elum Roslyn Elementary School. BAM is made possible through funding partnership with the Education Foundation for Cle Elum-Roslyn. Their table will feature a typical art lesson offered to students – in this case the lesson will be Leo Adams inspired found object sculptures. Susie Martin is the program lead – she will talk about her work with the school/BAM. Cassandra Town is President of the Education Foundation and will talk about how the partnership developed. The school district is now on board with prioritizing the arts and will be partnering with the Education Foundation in the visioning, planning, grant seeking, and hiring of a full time arts specialist for the district. The goal in hosting this station will be to showcase the collaborative efforts needed to build out this program in a public school setting.
