Grant Writing = Excitement...Anticipation...Wish Lists...Possibilities
Over the past couple of weeks I have been pouring over pages of information on screen printing machines and technology, have made phone calls to experienced artists and organizations and spent my time writing a grant for $10,000. Yes, $10,000! If this project is funded, myself and our tech ed teacher would receive enough money to set up our dream classrooms as far as technology goes, get to take our students on field trips to a printmaking studio, have an artist-in-residence come to our school, and create an in-house screen printing studio. I can't wait until the decisions have been made and to find out if our grant will be funded! It was certainly fun to create that wish list, but it will be so much more fun to have a classroom outfitted with such unique equipment for our students to create with...and now the waiting begins.
