Hey everyone, Roxy here. I’m writing you because I have some cool news and a great opportunity to pass along to other CPS educators and schools! I recently accepted an invitation to become a member of the Board of Directors of IPaintMyMind, a local nonprofit arts organization that I’ve worked with the past 4 years!! I’m super excited about it, and I want to offer a CPS teacher’s perspective.
When I first reached out to IPaintMyMind, I taught at Austin College & Career Academy, and our art budget was so low. I wanted to fill the halls with something that would encourage my students and show them that their school was worthy of having an art gallery inside it! My students absolutely loved having art in our hallways and felt proud to know about the artist and the artwork came from.
I’ve continued to work with them at Northwest Middle School, allowing me to work with local artists Dan Grzeca and Grae Galindo.
