G.A.P. Creative Collaboration Grant for Artists and Non Profits
Hearts' Stories has been awarded a $1,000 grant by a local Non Profit called The Global Awareness Project. Their goal for the grant is to offer a creative representation of our program and exhibit the artist's (photographer's) talent as well as the students' incredible work! The grant will enable a local photographer named Paula Player to capture and document our Hearts' Stories program in three Forestbrook Elementary School classrooms. Although Hearts' Stories has caught on district wide and is in several classrooms across the state, the photograpic documentary will focus on Mrs. Edwards, Mrs. Costner's and Mrs. Pon's second grade classrooms. I look forward to sharing the first pictures very soon!
