The Thea Foundation, which has provided nearly $1 million in arts supplies over five years to 388 Arkansas schools, has partnered with DonorsChoose.org, which connects donors with educators in need of materials. Teachers in all arts disciplines can apply for matching mini-grants donated by Thea through DonorsChoose.org.
Thea’s Art Closet will also provide visual arts matching grants for visual arts teachers only, based on need. The program will provide art teachers a singular donation to support one year of supplies.
