ART PROGRAM NEEDS FUNDING

Springfield’s Lanphier High School is one of many schools suffering from cuts to its art program.

Lanphier’s Art Department has been cut for the upcoming school year. With a supplies budget of  $900 a year to cover 20 classes by two teachers, maintaining will be difficult. With such a limited budget, students and teachers are looking for ways to keep the program alive.

To support their program, Pease’s Candy Shop has partnered with Lanphier and entered the GelGems window design contest. GelGems are adhesives that come in various colors and designs used for decorating windows. This year’s GelGems Retailer Window Contest requires partnering with a local charity to create a GelGems mural that promotes a cause.

The nationwide contest and online voting begins June 3 and is open till June 14. Come see the design at the downtown Pease’s location on 531 E. Washington St. Lanphier needs your help. If you would like to support Lanphier, please visit www.gelgems.com and vote for the Pease’s and Lanphier’s window design.
