  1. Hello,

    I am a Kindergarten teacher in Cherrywood Elementary School.
    Do you have art-related activities that are suitable for kids to explore in your museum? How do you charge?

    Thanks,
    Yilan

  2. I am looking for an art program for next school year (2019-2020) to get funded through Donors Choose. I currently teach Transitional Kindergarten at McCollam Elementary in Alum Rock School District in San Jose. I was wondering if it would be possible to get a quote from you so I could potentially get this funded through Donors Choose over the summer?
    Thank you,
    Nicole Gregoire
