Happy New Year!

Mundo Lindo, the free after school program I created and taught for 2 years lives on! (This is the logo I created for Mundo Lindo, when it first started in May 2007.)

Thanks so very very much to the generous anonymous donors of the $5,000 challenge grant, and to the Current Wisdom Foundation and to the individuals (noted below) Mundo Lindo has raised $10,000 and will start up again on Thursday, January 14th! The free two hour class runs 3-5pm every Thursday, and pre-registered 4th & 5th grade students, from the Escondido School District will begin a year long art adventure.

BIG thanks to : Cheryl Gaston, Rick Keating, Jim Kelly, Andrea Cassilas Hein, Virginia Sumner, Gary Carpenter, 10 North, Gillian Moss, Linda Shaw, Helen Shafer Garcia, Rachel Kopel, Nancy Lemke, Elizabeth Chiment, Seema Sueko, Ellen Speert, Wendee Lee, Lori Mitchell, Susan Avery Clark, Maureen Griffin, Rachel Grant, Kent and Erma, and Jo Ann Bryan.

Thank you--from me and most especially all the kids!

Through out the year, California Center for the Arts, Escondido Education Department will continue to fundraise for the year 2011.
