Support the PVUSD Student Art Show!


As organizers of the November 2014 art supply drive, PVAC continues to think about how to further strengthen arts curriculum in partnership with the Pajaro Valley Unified School District. Now there is another specific need. The children have made so much art work with the donated supplies that they plan to greatly expand their annual student art show. The district needs a bit of money (around $2000 total) for framing and displaying pieces, purchasing reusable frames. The Civic Plaza Building in downtown Watsonville is already designated for the display. If each person donates a little bit, we can, as we have already seen, have a huge impact.

Please join us to support our kids!

Send a tax-deductible financial donation to support the student art display.
