MISSION – BAC wants local teachers to complete class art projects without spending their own money to buy supplies… Given limited funding for the arts, this mission may seem impossible! With the help of the Bossier Arts Council, our followers, and the Young Professional Initiative (YPI), we aim to supply a new teacher’s art project each month.
HELP US HELP YOU – Use the form below to tell us about the project you would like your students to complete. The project does not have to be purely arts-related, we actively encourage S.T.E.A.M learning!
WHAT’S NEXT – We will let you know if your project has been selected. All we ask in return is that you send us a few images of the artworks created by your class!
NOTE – As a teacher in NW Louisiana, you can stop by year-round to pick up the various supplies that have been donated by BAC supporters and YPI members. Feel free to call to check our current stock. This program is called Project Art Supplies and it was created to help local teachers supplement their supply budgets!
Project Art Supplies is an ongoing effort to put art supplies in the hands of Bossier students. Please continue to support this effort by dropping off supplies to the Bossier Arts Council.
We love receiving emails like this one:
I’m sure a lot of folks don’t think too much about the importance that a box of crayons can make; however, many have donated that and many other items to the Bossier Arts Council for area teachers and students to use in their classrooms. Many have donated paint, paper and other items. Please pass this along to them – thank you very much. I have seen where that one box of crayons put a smile on a middle school boy’s face that would have lit up a room, and the high school girl that got watercolors was so proud because they were her’s to create with. The list of smiles is long thanks to the Bossier Arts Council and the support of the community. So I want to thank you so much for this program – it is working and it is a good thing – people do care.
