For the third year in a row, Geraldine's Counter is hosting a monthlong Hawthorne Elementary student art exhibit.
The Faces of Hawthorne exhibit runs May 4 to 31 and features a mosaic of self-portraits by kindergartners and first graders, plus other works of art celebrating our school's rich cultural diversity, our students' creativity and our community's commitment to ensuring that the arts are a vital part of our children's education.
The self-portrait mosaic and other student masterpieces raised more than $1,200 at our Faces of Hawthorne Auction, enough so that all kindergartners and first-graders will get to take their self-portraits home after the Geraldine's exhibit.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation during the Geraldine's exhibit to help us continue to provide the high-quality art instruction and materials that our children deserve.
You can make your gift at Geraldine's or on our website (just follow the instructions for making a one-time donation).
Thank you for your support!
