Pantoja Art Fundraiser
When I’m not drawing Phish related things, I’m an elementary and middle school art teacher. I want nothing but the best for my students (all 750 of them), and lately our budget has shrunk to almost nothing. Sadly, as a teacher it is expected to raise funds for your classroom, since most school budgets won’t cover everything that’s needed to ensure successful learning. While most of my coworkers opt for some great websites such as DonorsChoose, I decided to do things a little differently. Almost all my art starts out as ink and watercolor illustrations that are then scanned and digitally arranged. Some are randomly given away, but must are put in a portfolio where they are forgotten. Rather than let them sit and collect dust, I came up with an idea to get them out of my house and help out my classroom! I’ve reopened up my old shop, www.phishart.com where my original artwork can now be purchased, with 50% of what I sell going directly to purchase art supplies for my classroom. All orders will ship with extra original illustrations or prints, and a thank you drawing created by my students. We appreciate your support in ensuring my students can have the proper supplies to create some awesome artwork!
