Money for arts

Submitted By Margaret Thornberry

In its efforts to support art programs for students in our public schools, Fremont Art Association recently donated $350 to the Cultural Arts in The Schools (CATS) program offered by the Fremont Cultural Arts Council. To raise this money, seven artists from Fremont Art Association painted large indoor/outdoor banners with different subjects, which were sold by silent auction at the two-day Art in The Garden event at Regan's Nursery.

The CATS program helps schools bring quality art education assemblies to local grade schools by subsidizing the costs associated with student participation in the presentation at the assembly. Interested schools can contact www.FremontCulturalArtsCouncil.org for further information. CATS also accepts tax-deductible donations from community members who share our concern about the lack of funding for art education in our public schools.
