Todd Lensing, Gold Beach schools’ art teacher, presented Curry Arts board members with a BIG Thank You from his art students for donations of Brew & Art Festival proceeds for art supplies. The thank you was presented at the board meeting on October 24, 2017.
Donations from the annual Brew & Art Festival are used for purchasing art supplies, for special projects such as framing student’s work for art exhibits, and continuation of a ceramics program at the high school. Mr. Lensing said that in addition to purchasing “awesome” art supplies, this year’s donation will purchase a laptop and printer for each school to be used exclusively by art students for designing and printing artwork ideas in the classroom.
The Curry Arts board took action at the meeting to donate $5,000 from this year’s Brew & Art Festival proceeds to the Gold Beach School arts and music departments, raising the amount donated to these important programs over the last 5 years to over $25,000.
