Bringing Art to Schools is made possible only by the support of the many individuals and organizations that recognize the value of an elementary art program in our community.

BATS extends its heartfelt thanks to the many volunteers working in the classroom. They make it happen! They attending training sessions, mentor new presenters, and return year after year to work with the children.

Alice Grulich-Jones has been our photographer. Many of the images on the website are the result of her generous gift of time and talent to provide permanent record of BATS activities.

We are grateful for the support of school PTA’s which are able to budget money to provide limited art supplies for the program.

The Art Department of the Lake Tahoe Community College has facilitated the field trips to the Haldan Gallery. They have opened the Gallery early to accommodate school bus arrival and have provided space and staff to help with the art projects and visits. Thank you to all!

A special thanks goes to Penny Shrawder, Webmaster.

A heartfelt thank you to Marcus Ashley Gallery, who professionally prepared student art for the Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation Fall Food Fest and Auction.
