James Baldwin Art Department Donations

Message from Art Teacher, Mr. Barber: We rely heavily on donations to ensure we have what students need to be successful. Last year, through the generosity of friends and family, $1,500 was donated to the art department. This year, I would like to set the goal at $2,000. Every cent of your donation will go to a group of students whose gratitude, joy and imagination have real power in improving our world.
