Harvey Arts Program Assistance

Please Help With Hurricane Harvey Relief

9/29/2017 — We at TAEA have worked with our other Fine Arts Friends to Create a Go Arts match up. We launched this just for affected teachers and are launching this today for those who wish to help. Many Texas school fine arts programs have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey. And while school districts are working to help them recover, some immediate needs still exist. We want students in these affected programs to have the resources they need to fully experience a well-rounded education that includes the arts, and we don't want them to have to wait. You can help bring back the arts.
