Through the generosity of the San Mateo County Arts Commission, thirty-five San Mateo County schools have been selected, and will each receive a basket of art materials valued at $80.00. Schools receiving these baskets will be able to provide students with activities in art that they may not have had prior to the San Mateo County Arts Commission’s generous donation and partnership with RAFT.
RAFT has a strong offering of hands-on teaching Math and Science Kits and Idea sheets. This partnership and distribution of art baskets shows RAFT’s efforts to support “STEAM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) — the integration of art with math and art with science and more –to improve student engagement and to utilize visual learning to convey concepts in a way that helps students “get it”.
Our thanks to the San Mateo County Arts Commission for making this possible!
