Crayon Box: Coloring Outside the Lines

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.
— Pablo Picasso

On Wednesday, May 16th, 2018, Flance held our first fundraising event featuring our arts enrichment programming with our preschoolers. We hosted our event at the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis. With assistance from our arts enrichment specialist Quincy (from SIUE), we displayed some select pieces of art from our preschoolers at the Contemporary Art Museum (CAM). Guests were able to get a private tour by the Executive Director of CAM, Lisa Melandri. At the end of the event, we honored our retired Board of Director President, Ron Jackson, and presented the first annual "Ron Jackson Educator of the Year Award" to our preschool teacher, Phyllis D. Robinson.

We want to thank all of our donors, supporters, board members, staff, and families. WIthout your support and championing of Flance, we could not support unique programming like our arts enrichment.

A special thank you to our sponsors: Advantage Capital, Express Scripts, Major Brands, McCormack Baron Salazar, PNC, and Trivers.
