George's Art Closet

Many teachers are often faced with the problem of inadequate funding for visual art supplies and struggle to provide meaningful arts experiences for their students.

George's Art Closet is a program that addresses this need by awarding art supply kits to Louisiana art teachers and schools whose funding does not otherwise allow for the expense.  The program awards two $1,000 kits each month to select elementary, middle, and high schools across Louisiana.



Kits for Elementary Schools Often Include:

Hole Punches
Glue Sticks and Glue
Tempera Paint
Air Dry Clay
Construction and Art Paper
