Bringing In Smiles One Child At a Time

We wish you a Beautiful, Holiday Season full of smiles, light and laughter.
Happy Holidays
 
This year  has been an amazing journey.  WE simply want to say Thank you for all of your support.  The children in our community benefit from your belief in the power of the arts to change community. 

Our Impact, Your Impact, the Arts IMPACT

Today was the last day of school before break.  A Kindergarten student came up to  Arianna Ross, our Executive Director, and said "Thank you.  I do like school. But I love coming to class when you are here.  Can you come every day?" 

Sadly, we can't come every day.  Our time at a school is finite.  However, our goal is to build sustainable arts integration programming in every location we partner with across the country.  We have partners now in MD, DC, VA, FL, NC, LA and CA.   AND we are planning to spread the gift of arts to other states even as we write this e-newsletter.  

WE know and you know the value of the arts.  We just have to convince everyone else through our actions.  The more we do, the more we can change our community. 

 A NOTE From the Executive Director:

 We at Story Tapestries wish you and yours a Happy Holidays.  Thank you for the gift of  supporting the arts and education.  We look forward to seeing where 2014 takes us.  I believe that we are at the edge of a cliff towards great expansion.  We get calls on a weekly basis from donors who wish to support our programs.  At the same time, we get calls from schools who need financial support to bring the arts to their communities.  Just $35 can make sure a student experiences an in-depth 5 day artist-in-residency program.  $55 gives 3 adults professional development training to benefit hundreds of children.

 Thank you,

 Arianna Ross

Executive Director
