Arts in the Bag for Renaissance Academy Charter School of the Arts

Today marks the first shipment of the SchoolWorks Lab’s ARTS IN THE BAG of fun projects and art supplies to 86 second and third graders in Rochester, NY! They are part of a new school called Renaissance Academy Charter School of the Arts. This school integrates all of the arts into their core curriculum and students flourish!

Arts in the bag delivers new ideas, fun projects and arts supplies every month, but in this case, the school wanted to send the bags home with the students over the summer. We are sending 86 individually packaged art bags with supplies and easy to read directions to every student. The pre-packed bags will arrive at the school and the teachers will add paper to them for the students to use as drawing pads, painting sheets and cut-out materials. In the bags are drawing pencils, erasers, sharpeners, scissors, glue sticks paper plates to draw the food charts on, paint brushes, water colors, etc.

Creativity is important to support in the summer and this school has decided to give their students plenty of ways to use that skill while having fun. Each student receives all of these art supplies and a nice new bag with our logo on it to keep the supplies in a safe and easily accessible place. The bag can be repurposed at the discretion of the family, or used for many years to keep the supplies at the ready.

Good Luck Renaissance Academy Charter School of the Arts!
