Art in Motion “Under the Oaks”
Raising awareness and support for art education
Dear Community and Business Leader,
The Lucia Mar Foundation for Innovation (LMFI), in partnership with Lucia Mar Unified School District (LMUSD), is proud to sponsor our 7th Annual ART IN MOTION benefitting art education in our public schools. During the month of March, student art from LMUSD K-12 classrooms will be on display throughout the Five Cities businesses. Each classroom that participates is paired up with a business near their school in hopes of increasing the awareness of the importance of art in education and to raise funds to support art in our schools. Our goal this year is to increase the number of business and community sponsors to raise more money to give back to our schools.
Art education is important not only to a well-rounded education but is increasingly becoming critical in preparing students for college and/or careers. The arts help develop creativity, real world thinking, and math and symmetry skills, to name just a few benefits. With our initiative we are working with schools to encourage and foster instruction that develops skills in these areas and enriches the student experience.
Here’s how you can help:
- · Be a Sponsor for our event
- A donation of $100, $250 or $500 will provide you with the opportunity to showcase a classroom’s art in your business attracting customers, recognition and to show support for art in education.
