Establishing School Art Collectives

Each year schools are identified after a thorough process of due diligence. The schools that meet the most criteria will be placed on a list of potential schools that will be offered the opportunity to form their own "School Art Collective". The school with the highest number of criteria met will be the first in line to be offered the opportunity to work with the National School Art Collective while receiving financial and logistic support. Depending on funding for the year, other schools will be approached and offered the opportunity to establish their own "School Art Collectives as well.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals include supporting the development of student selected and student owned professional art collections in schools in every state in America. Each collection will expose students to art every day, helps enrich areas of the curriculum, and empowers students to become leaders in their school and community.

We want to help bring the students, faculty, and greater school communities together by developing the collections, holding fundraiser events, building relationships with local and statewide artists, art organizations, universities and colleges, and forging closer ties with the local business community.

Establishing 1-3 "School Art Collectives a year will be our focus in the first few years.

Research is constantly being conducted on potential schools identified in establishing "School Art Collectives". Once a small number of schools are identified, the schools will be contacted in order of the most criteria being met. The criteria is a a series of qualifications that help demonstrate each school's capacity in maintaining and growing each collective after the first 3 years. Led by President, James Kitchen, each school selected will be provided a plan for their collective to be established as well as developed each year.

Our funding will be directly tied into how many schools we can take this plan to each year. After the predetermined amount needed to fund annual operating costs and at least one school art collective are met, then we will know just how much money and resources

Within the past 6 months we have officially formed the nonprofit, received our 501(c)3 status, established our operational office and accounting infrastructure, brought on new board members, officers, advisor board members, and support staff. We have also established our website, produced informational videos about our mission and goals, setup a crowdfunding campaign, received donations from individuals as well as a foundation. We have also developed relationships with other nonprofits with similar missions as well as forged closer ties with our network of supporters. We have registered with the required local, state, and federal entities needed in order to conduct business or solicit donations in the states that we are working to date. We are currently building our staff and bringing in more help to manage the daily operation of the nonprofit. We have applied for several grants through foundations and are actively seeking corporate sponsorship. College students with connections to our organization through art, art education, and art histroy, are being recruited to establish campus organzations that support our mission. The establishment of these organizations will provide a network of support for the future of our organization. It will develop future leaders of the NSAC as well as build awareness of our organization in schools, museums, and related institutions nationwide.
