My name is Melissa Phillips. I’m the art teacher at Ivan L. Green Primary School on Brown Road in East Irondequoit. I’d like to give you an opportunity to support our students and community by being part of our fourth annual….
Art Builds Community Dinner
In March 2015, the Ivan L. Green Primary and Durand-Eastman Intermediate schools will be hosting this event. The purpose of this community event is:
* To raise money and collect food for the Irondequoit Community Food Cupboard.
* To promote community service and make connections within our community.
* To raise awareness and support for the visual arts (March is Youth Art Month).
* To raise awareness and support for the music program (March is Music in our Schools month).
We would like to invite all artists and crafters to donate artwork for an art auction at this event.
We are looking for items with a value of under $20 (or gift certificates) for a ticket auction. The tickets will be available to purchase for .50 cents and participants will place their tickets in a container for the item they want to try to win. If you would like to donate an art work worth between $20 and $40 we will put it in a ticket auction where tickets will be $2 apiece.
We are looking for paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, pottery, jewelry, scrapbooking, quilting, fiber arts, etc. If you plan to donate we request all contributors complete the brief information form that is attached. All artwork must be delivered to Durand Eastman or Ivan Green by February 13th.
The ABC Dinner is an event held at Durand Eastman on March 5, 2015, 5:30 – 7:30pm. Contributors are invited to attend the event; tickets are available for purchase for $5 which covers the pizza dinner and includes the student art show, community art show and performances. Proceeds of this event will be donated to the Irondequoit Community Cupboard.
I can be reached by email at Melissa_phillips@eastiron.monroe.edu.
On behalf of the ABC committee I would like to thank you in advance for you time, effort and (hopefully) donation in investing in our students’ education.
