Welcome back to Week 7 of our 45 Days of Giving! See Days 31 – 35 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 6 to get all the action!
Ivanetta H. Davis Early Learning Center is a child- and family-centered public preschool. What’s unique about this preschool is the children’s growth and development are supported through the studies of the Creative Curriculum. Each day, students focus on literacy, math, social studies and science while also receiving social and emotional learning through experiences in the garden, the library and art classes. Teaching students through STEAM is very important for Nossi College and we were thrilled to stock their classroom with markers, crayons, crafting supplies and plenty of glue to hold it all together!

Students attending Madison Middle end up at Hunter’s Lane High School to continue their education. Nossi College is a big supporter of Hunter’s Lane High School and the creative education taught there. We are a business partner for the Design and Tech Academy and want to support all students at Madison Middle before finding their future at Hunter’s Lane.

Nossi College wanted to provide gallery space to their artists while hosting an artist reception on Thursday, November 1 at 5:30 (RSVP HERE!). We really hope you can stop by, meet some of the artists (donate a few art supplies) and maybe buy that perfect holiday gift for the person who has everything! We will be set up in the Ira Gallery and the exhibit will be available until the end of December.
Poverty and the Arts is a social enterprise providing supplies, studio space, training, and a marketplace for artists impacted by homelessness to create and sell artwork, as well as gain valuable entrepreneurial and social skills which helps them earn creative income, access higher-waged employment, increase their housing stability, and build the necessary security nets to remain out of homelessness.

Is this Deja Vu? You may have seen last week that we supported East Nashville Hope Exchange with images of their Saturday workshop. As with most creative projects, we always like to collaborate with multiple degree programs so students understand how to collaborate outside of class. Shout out again to Daniela Dominguez for capturing images so Pam English can begin designing a brochure to help this nonprofit get their message out! Pam is working on-one-one to design the brochure and help with getting it printed in a professional way!
