And the best part? It’s all for a good cause....go to giveintothegroove.com for more info.
The Virtual Quilt is a free digital platform where users can upload images of their original artwork for inclusion in an online exhibit and interactive community experience.
Through this program funds will be awarded to the highest participating art departments within Fayette County Public Schools. Private schools in Fayette County can participate in the project but are not eligible to receive any monetary awards. Still, everyone’s art counts towards raising monies to supporting local non profits!
These funds are made available through grants from Give into the Groove Foundation. Visit www.thevirtualquilt.com
