"With all the changes to this summer, my husband and I have been trying new ways to entertain our household. Today is a rainy day and when the house got silent, I got worried! I went to see what trouble was being caused and I found everyone making different projects together. They asked me if I could print different projects for them to do.
Pretty quickly I came across your art resources page and it was the perfect find for us! They loved the different projects! Thank you for making our day a little more fun! It's beyond appreciated!" Sarah Smith, 2020

Engaged in distance learning? Ensure that quality arts learning is part of the equation. Our kids need to dream, and imagine, and express their voices, and create.
Over the past few months, my middle-schooler has been practicing for her first photography class this year. I've never seen Kasey so interested in something before and it's been great watching her come out of her shell. Although we learned equipment and lessons can cost a ton!! We wanted to send over a little thank you! Kasey came across your family art page https://www.coastside-artists.com/art-resources.html It's led her to tons of awesome guides and has learned so much from it! She refers to your resources quite a bit and I'm pretty sure she never closes the tab, haha.
Helping Kasey by being a model, setting up random plants and looking up new tips and techniques has been a great way to bond as well.

We want to give the Coastal Arts League a big thumbs up from our youth ministry group! They needed ideas for art activities and plays that can be watched from home so your recommendations here are awesome.
Sadly we can't meet in person because of the pandemic, a few of our members (Joshua, Meg, Aubree, and Skylar) have been meeting virtually to make newsletters with activity ideas for our congregation- I'm totally amazed by their wonderful efforts! Right now they are putting together a list of virtual plays and concerts for families still stuck at home. That's how Joshua discovered your website which gave us a lot of material to include! They wanted me to pass along their gratitude :)
Thanks again, it's very cool to make this connection during these hectic times. Please take care!
