High School Art Sponsorships
We met our goal in 2015 by doubling our donations to the Nordhoff High School art program and awarded them $1,200. Thanks to our generous sponsors!
What do you think, can we double the 2015 donations in 2017? Why not, let's make attaining $2,500 in donations our goal for 2017!
"As Always we are so grateful to the Ojai community for their support of the fine arts programs here at Nordhoff. With the Ojai Art Center's sponsor donations we are able to further our programs and provide new artistic opportunities for our students. Art in the Park is an event that inspires the students and allows them to meet with artists working in other communities. It offers a real world experience and gives them confidence in their own work. We always love to see the students talking about the work they have created and it’s wonderful for them to get praise and feedback from the Ojai community. This is an event that they look forward to and plan for all year, and it’s such a rewarding way for them to end the school year. A big thank you to Ojai Art Center and the many sponsors. Last year we used the money from Art in the Park on a precious metal clay kiln for jewelry making."
Gratefully, Gray Duncan and Kate Thomas of Nordhoff Art Dept.
“A big Thank you to the Ojai Art Center for giving these young artists this opportunity. The generosity of all of the sponsors who supported these students has allowed them to a real world experience that they would not get any other way. We all appreciate the time and effort that has gone into supporting Nordhoff fine art programs. Thank you all!”
Gray Duncan, art instructor
“Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity for our students and the wonderful support of your donation. I feel so lucky to live in a community like Ojai where the arts are so revered and where my students can feel so proud of their artistic accomplishments throughout the year and are welcomed by the community to showcase their work. This generous donation really makes it possible for us to have the best art programs possible.”
Kate Thomas, art instructor
“On behalf of everyone here at Nordhoff High School, since we all benefit from a strong presence of the arts on our campus, we thank you so much for supporting art in this community and at our school. We are so grateful to live in a place that values the arts and understands the importance of investing in well-rounded students. Thank you!”
Greg Bayless, principal
In 2014, we raised $1,200 in the High School Art Sponsorship category which provided the Nordhoff Art Program with $600.
"Thank you so much for your generous donation and for giving our students an opportunity to showcase their work at Art in the Park. Everyone had a really great time. We are excited to buy some new equipment for next year and to begin offering Jewelry Making & Techniques as part of our coursework. Your donation is allowing that to happen!"
