The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art recently received $10,000 from The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County Community Needs grant program and $2,000 from the Robert H. Janssen Youth & Youth Sports Fund. The funds will support a wide variety of children’s art education activities, including SLOMA’s after-school classes at the museum and at locations countywide, and its weeklong spring break and summer art camps.
“It is so important that we keep the visual arts a vital part of our children’s education,” said Beth Mott, youth education coordinator.
