NAMTA Members Support Young Artists at MLK Art & Writing Awards
Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools in North Carolina celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. this past January by recognizing a number of young artists in their school system by presenting them with Martin Luther King Art & Writing Awards.
Through NAMTA’s relationship with Cheryl Maney, Pre K-12 Visual Arts and Dance Curriculum Specialist from Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, BINDERS ART & FRAME had the opportunity to help make this event even more special.
Chad Cartwright (pictured), from Binders' Charlotte location, coordinated twelve awards for the recipients that included gift cards and art supplies, and was there to help present the students with the gift bags. NAMTA members STRATHMORE and SLS ARTS donated supplies for the gift bags, and NAMTA added an “Art Matters” T-shirt with a congratulatory note for each student. See more pictures

Namta recently received some photos from one of our 2019 Grant Recipients and wanted to share them with all of our members to remind all of you, at this difficult time, the importance to continue to keep the arts alive and thriving. As Peter Kelly who works in Foundation Relations at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls comments – “it’s so awesome to see moments like these when our kids are having fun and expressing themselves.” Thank you Namta members for helping to make this possible.
