Fantastic ‘Artist-in-Classroom’ Program at Flynn Elementary

Submitted by Editor on February 15, 2017 – 4:15 pm | Print or Email »No Comment

In Fall 2016, an Artist-in-Classroom (AIC) endowed fund was established with the Eau Claire Public School Foundation by two Eastside Hill patrons for Flynn Elementary School. The purpose of the fund is to provide support for an artist to participate in the art classes for one semester per year to share her/his art and technique with the students and faculty. The method for selecting the artist will be a “Call for Artist”, and the applicants will be reviewed and selected by the art teacher and non-Eau Claire Public School Foundation representative. Together, the art teacher and the artist will determine the activity, hours and schedule for the artist. The selection of the first AIC artist will be for the 2017-2018 academic year.

At the present, the interest from the endowment will provide for one artist in an academic year. The next goal is to increase the fund to provide an artist for both fall and spring of the academic year. For information about the AIC and fund, please contact :
