Starts with Arts Studio & Supplies Fund

Did you know that students who participate in arts programs are at least three times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement?

Studies show that students of the arts out performed their non-arts peers on the SAT, improving their scores in math, foreign language and creative writing. With our education system in crisis, it's essential to invest in art programs in the Imperial Valley.

The Starts with Arts Foundation is dedicated to bringing awareness of the advantages of having art/music programs as part of the everyday class curriculum. The foundation's sole purpose is to help provide teachers with the materials they need to teach art and critical thinking in their classes.

Every dollar will be donated to the El Centro Elementary School District to help purchase art supplies for struggling art programs and help the foundation continue their art workshops and demonstrations throughout the Imperial Valley.

We really appreciate all your help and support! Hugs.
