Central Elementary School’s extensive collection of

Cultural Arts paintings is in desperate need of conservation

Many of our frames are broken, nicked, scratched,
framed with dangerous glass and lack appropriate signage.

Through the recently introduced ‘Adopt-A-Painting‘ program, art appreciators and friends of Central School have the unique opportunity to leave a lasting legacy. Donated funds cover the cost of re framing and signage, helping students identify the artist and painting title.

Our goal is to re-frame all curriculum paintings by the end of the school year.

You, your family, friends or company will have the ability to adopt a particular work or grouping of art.

[UPDATE 4/25/2011 – the program has ended. Thank you to all who have donated.]

In return, you’ll receive permanent signage acknowledging the donor’s name along with a commemorative photo.

Your donation is tax deductible (ask your accountant).
