The Museum of Northwest Art (MONA) connects people with the arts, diverse cultures, and environments of the Northwest through exhibitions and educational activities meant to foster essential conversations and creativity.
Recently, we were able to provide them with a $5,000 grant for educational programs for the youth of our community. As a part of this grant, students will be able to participate in Family Art Days, Early Enrichment, and other art activities hosted by MONA. We view this as an essential skill in preparing them for career and college readiness in line with the Common Core State Standards. With comprehensive sequential arts education as a requirement for students in Washington State, most school districts are unable to meet this requirement with the exception of music. MONA is able to stand in the gap and partner with these schools to meet the great need.
Many students and adults experience the museum for the first time as a result of our educational programming. We continue to strive to connect more people to the art, diverse cultures and environments of the Northwest.
With close to 8,000 students being served through their programs, MONA is giving our youth a head start as they prepare for their futures. Please visit their website here to learn more about their programs and consider getting involved today.
