Queen Anne’s County Kids Create Art-Driven Event

An art-driven event to benefit local and global causes, will take place Saturday, April 24th from 10am to 4pm at Queen Anne’s County High School in Centreville, Maryland.  Artwork donated by local artists and community members will be featured along with art created by children who are studying Africa in after school programs at Church Hill, Grasonville and Sudlersville Elementary Schools.

Children in Partnering for Youth’s After School Program, Project A to Z, have been learning about the food and water challenges facing the people of Africa.  In response, they have chosen to support local food pantries and an African water initiative by creating artwork to trade for canned food and donations.

To help these children succeed with their project, all community members are invited to attend the event on April 24th, volunteer at the event and donate artwork to be traded/sold in exchange for canned goods and donations. Please contact  Tammy Shay, Program Coordinator, Partnering for Youth After School Program by email shayt@qacps.k12.md.us call 410-758-4365 to volunteer or make your donation.

This service-learning project is funded by a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant issued by the Maryland Department of Education.
