In 2013 Dillard Elementary did not have an art program nor the funds to maintain one. Their art journey started when we facilitated a field trip for 70 students to see the world famous Guy Harvey Exhibit at Nova Southeastern University. Since then, Dillard has gained a few more partners in education through Ranger Good Works such as the Young at Art Museum and Neiman Marcus. Together we have influenced Dillard to include art in their after school programs. Dillard understands the importance of teaching a STEM-based education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and is now calling it “STEAM”. The A is for Art!
Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics may be more important than ever for the development of our next generation of children as they grow up. Art will help the students in the following areas: Motor Skills, Language Development, Decision Making, Visual Learning, Inventiveness and Cultural Awareness.
You can be a part of the Art Journey at Dillard Elementary. Volunteer to assist in an after school initiative or sponsor by donating funding or supplies.
