Friends of Fine Arts
Supporting the Arts
An annual membership drive is our primary fundraiser. This, along with other fundraising events throughout the year, allows FOFA to contribute to a wide range of initiatives while also working toward granting wishes from our teachers, which include necessities for the classroom and defraying costs of events students may have the opportunity to experience.
In previous years we have:
- Assisted the Middle and Upper School art department with the cost of AP art framing, a new paper cutter, and support of the memory project.
- Helped the Lower School music and art department with the purchase of a huge bass bar to enrich the sound of our Orff ensemble, as well as added a few accessories to our African drum ensemble. We also helped purchase a set of beautiful bells for the PreK music department, and purchased a new art display system for the Lower School hallway.
- Purchased new music and additional music stands for the Upper School band department, as well as a new digital piano for the Middle and Upper School music room.
- Assisted in renting lights and mics for the amazing performance of Into the Woods in the drama department, as well as ran concessions for the plays and set up for drama awards night.
We are hoping to provide extraordinary opportunities this year, and in the years to come, by providing assistance with field trips and experiences that will foster a creative and positive atmosphere. Some upcoming opportunities include: inviting a visiting artist to talk with art students in the fall semester, the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) sidewalk chalk festival (where students participate in the Savannah competition), the Georgia Thespian Conference, field trips to see theatre productions for our drama students, and the Lower School European Trip, to name a few.
We thank you in advance for your prayers, financial support, and willingness to volunteer. Please check the Westminster online calendar for upcoming events.
