Elementary students' creativity will be enhanced through exploring the world of 3D art forms in rotating learning stations in a studio atmosphere. These 3D studio stations will help students develop an appreciation for 3D Art and artists, while developing "hands on" artistic skills with specific learning objectives.

This grant would go towards replacing tools and equipment used by the Ford Middle School theater department. Working on theater sets teaches students life-long skills: how to use a drill, the difference between a flat head and a Phillips screwdriver, and the math needed to measure boards before cutting them. It also gives them a place where they experience success, have positive results from their hard work, and learn about a possible trade if they are not college bound.
