Arts Advocacy Postcards
February 13-17 is Arts Advocacy week! Using a postcard art template designed by SC Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities Students, you will add color to make the postcard your own. Then, turn it over and write a message to your legislator asking them to support the arts!
Providers will also receive a digital resource to aid in facilitating discussions with students about arts advocacy and their personal connection to the arts.
Suitable for grades K-12.
