Click on the logo to the left and see the most wonderful vision I have had to bring more into our schools and to promote my personal goal of acceptance of individuality. Thank you for all of your support for my programs in the past, and now I ask more of you than ever. I am a doer. I still am not being paid for any of the programs that I teach but I cannot ask my Staff Directors to live my lifestyle in an RV trading for food and shelter. So, we have started grant writing, merging with the local GLBTQ Community Club to give us financial sponsorship so that we can apply to the “big guys”, but it has been the grassroots, the people who have believed in my programs who have stepped up to the plate financially to support the information that I posted at the bottom of this page. PLEASE, I need your financial support. I need your help again. Join with me to make this a better place for students, art, and a safer gentler world.
It's All About the Kids and Art and making sure it never ends in schools!
