GRATON ARTIST TO SELL PAINTINGS TO BENEFIT LOCAL SCHOOL

Standard

Graton artist and school teacher, Drea Jensen, in efforts to raise money for the Harmony Ark Education Foundation, is putting four of her paintings up for sale, with proceeds going to help fund the enrichment educational needs of local students.

“Providing art, music and sport opportunities to young people encourages them to succeed academically in school,” said Jensen.  “It is my hope that selling these paintings will help our local children.”

The Harmony Ark Education Foundation  funds many programs for the Harmony Union School District including art, music, band, after school sports, technology, drama, the garden program, Renaissance Fridays, Spanish, field trips, and poetry as well as scholarships and materials for the classrooms and the library.  This year, the Ark is also funding a new play structure for the Kindergarten area, e-books for the school library, and listening centers for the second and third grade classes.

The paintings can be viewed in the “Small Wonders” exhibit running 10/16/12 to 1/06/13 at the Occidental Center for the Arts.
