Nasco is inspired to share how art changes the world through real examples in art education. Teachers are not only teaching the disciplines of art but also character education and service learning. Nasco’s goal is to be an advocate for art education and to connect teachers and students to share how they are impacting their schools, community, and our world through their art. We are interested in hearing how you are using your art for a purpose.

Art Educator, North Gwinnett High School, Suwanee, Georgia
Over the years my students have participated in Empty Bowls, Pinwheels for Peace, The Memory Project, Relay for Life, and a Visualizing Virtue yearlong theme based curriculum. I call these combined projects “Art with Purpose.” The curriculum allows students to connect to and reflect on community needs through their artistic skills. I believe art saves lives. My students have raised over $25,000 to help others.
