We are so happy to inform our community that the following schools have been ACCEPTED for the 20/21 school year, beginning in September 2020!! Wooooohooooooooooo!!!!!!! 🙂

Each school will receive ONE FREE YEAR of arts programming on behalf of IPaintMyMind, and we cannot wait to see how our ‘Experience, Reflect, Make’ framework for arts engagement catapults your classrooms and students!
