The Islands Museum of Art thanks everyone who donated to Art K-12 education through the San Juan Island Community Foundation’s matching grant program. The Community Foundation increased your donations by a 50 percent match, helping us reach our fund-raising goal.
These funds are being used in a collaborative effort with the San Juan Island School District to maintain art education at Friday Harbor Middle School and to expand the Art Enrichment program at the elementary school.
Art education helps our students develop the visual literacy, problem solving and critical thinking skills needed to succeed and thrive in their careers and lives.
This K-12 program is also supported by grants and funding from the Friday Harbor Elementary School PTA and the Washington State Arts Commission.
We thank these organization for their support as well.
