Welcome back to Week 6 of our 45 Days of Giving! See Days 26 – 30 below!
In the fall of 2018, Nossi College of Art is celebrating our 45th anniversary, and we decided to do 45 acts of creative kindness for local classrooms, non-profits, church groups. Nashville and the surrounding communities have been supportive of Nossi College and the impact we wanted to make on this area, so in return, we wanted to feature 45 acts of thankfulness.
If you haven’t already, check out our previous blog for Week 5 to get all the action!
‘Art is so Fun’ is designed to engage children ages 3-6 years old. Unique lesson plans take art elements from famous painters and paintings and implement games, geography, music and math to create an environment where young children not only enjoy learning about art, they remember the lessons from week to week. Each artist is discussed for four weeks
