My school, Brunswick Acres is currently in 1st place to win the $5000 Kris Wine and Americans for the Arts grant. Our school and community have been voting for Brunswick Acres on the Kris Wine Facebook page
facebook.com/kriswines/app_277727432252070 once each day to try to make a difference for my artists.
My students are too young to vote, so in an effort to create a way for them to be involved, I created a parody of the song, "Call Me Maybe" , titled, "Vote B.A. Daily". Students are currently filming a music video to this song.
Something magical happened this past week! Tricia Fuglestad, amazing art teacher of Dryden Elementary School in Arlington Heights, Illinois, shared our song with her students. They loved it so much that they expressed an interest in getting their families involved in voting for us. Mrs. Fuglestad then posted our song to the sidebar of her Dryden Art Blog to invite her school community to join forces with us! Check out the Fugleblog here: drydenart.weebly.com/fugleblog.html
Thank you Mrs. Fuglestand, Dryden artists and community for joining forces with us! We are inspired by your work all of the time and feel so honored that you want to support us!
