They will have all semester to work on the piece. At the end of the school year, we will host an art gala and the pieces will be auctioned off. 100% of the proceeds from the sale will go back into the schools arts programming; thus creating the first ever fully self sustaining arts program.  To be a mentor contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
