Connecting Art to Community Kids!

SCA Art Cards!

Jennifer Jones Rashleigh, Co-chair for the South Coast Artists Education Committee, met with six community service student volunteers from Tiverton High School who helped draw, and create samples to show children and instructors how to use our SCA Art Cards.

We shared the samples, instructions, and 3200 art cards with Karen Ennis, Executive Director of TRIUMPH–Head Start Association in Taunton, MA.
When SCA spoke to Karen a few months ago, she said, “the kids have very few art supplies and that this was an incredible gift to the program.”

Thank you THS Community Service Volunteers! You have helped SCA reach a huge new group of children who are really in need of creative supplies and experiences.
