LC Awarded Fine Arts Grant
The La Conner Club has been awarded a grant from Art 4 Moore in the amount of $1,500 to expand its Fine Arts Exhibit program.
Art 4 Moore was founded in 2006 by Stephanie Dains, a former elementary school teacher and registered Art Therapist. Art 4 Moore was a way to honor her late mother, Marjory Moore Brooks. Based out of the San Francisco –Bay Area, their mission is to provide art supplies, support and resources for students, children, youth and others who need it the most.
The Fine Arts Exhibit program in La Conner is now a year-round program that encourages artistic expression among Club members ages 6-18 through drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, mixed media and sculpture while providing opportunities for members to create artwork for display in a local exhibit. Led by Arts Coordinator Jeff Mariott, the kids have already begun creating some amazing pieces at the Club.
La Conner Club Director Kendrick Davis-Pittmon said, “We are extremely grateful to everyone from the Art 4 Moore Foundation. With their generous grant, we are able to take our fine arts programming to a whole new level. La Conner is rich in art history, and we look forward to being able to foster and develop the next generation of great local artists”
The Fine Arts Exhibit program runs every day from 2:30-5:00 p.m. For more information on upcoming art projects or any other Targeted Programs at the La Conner Club, please contact Program Director, Leah Vazquez at (360) 466-3672.
