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.
