My name is Claire Richmond. I grew up in the Corvallis area (Philomath, specifically) and I’m now a sophomore at Scripps College in California. As part of a class about grant writing, I am trying to implement a program at the Philomath Youth Activities Center which offers art classes twice a week to students grades 4-8. Right now, the only available programs are for sports teams, and I think this is a huge injustice to the students with interest or talent in art.
I am looking for a professional to teach these classes and your website looked like the best place to start. Can you recommend anyone to me, or point me in the direction of where else to look? I would very much appreciate it.
Thank you! – Claire
