People need art.
That's why the Mulvane partners with area schools and agencies, reaching out to give children the creative skills and artistic knowledge to become their very best.
More schools are applying to participate than ever before. The reasons are simple:
- Art is a lower-funded priority in many public schools.
- The Mulvane offers hands-on visual arts programs to children in need.
- The Mulvane even provides bus transportation for schools and programs that lack the funding.
The numbers tell the story. During the six months from August 2009 to January 2010:
- 1,067 children and 20 schools used the Mulvane bus transportation fund to get to art programs at the Mulvane.
- 16,601 people were served by Mulvane educational programs.
