Project Summary

Student Art Education Association (SAEA) partnered with the Spanish Honor Society and the Octopus College Hill to raise money and accept art/school supply donations for a struggling school in Puerto Rico ( and at that time, still without electricity). This event took place on February 27th @ 5-7pm at the Octopus College Hill. Jose Saveedra, a Puerto Rican American from the Cedar Valley, performed at this event as well. In case individuals could not attend the big event, we also tabled in Schindler lobby by Room 217 multiple days, put out donation boxes in Kamerick Art Building, and an envelope for cash collection (104 Kamerick Art Office) and Bartlett 1001. Supplies were be sent to: Imbery Elementary School Escuela Elemental Imbery List of Materials Acquired: Crayons, Tempera paint, paint brushes, sketch and drawing pads, drawing paper, construction paper, white glue, colored pencils, oil pastels, color/drawing chalk, paint for murals/acrylic, yarn/color knitting and other basic (lightweight) school supplies. This event was very successful! We raised approximately $500 for the school, as well as 2 suitcases and a large box full of art supplies. Student Art Education Association also promotes the love of art within the community. Every semester, our members volunteer at St. Patrick's Art Club and Country View Care Center. This occurs on a monthly basis. St. Patrick's currently does not have an art program, so we provide the students with that outlet. The residents at County View also enjoy engaging in crafts and conversations with UNI students! Emily Shinkle and Aimee Luksan SAEA Co-Presidents and Wendy Miller, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Art Education
