Here's a thought....for less than 8,000 dollars you could expose these kids to actual ART. (And I am not talking about the Tucson Museum of Art, that is another whole sad topic).
For less than 8,000 dollars you could load the kids on a bus, take them to Vegas (whooo hoo Vegas! They would love that.) You could unload them at the Wynn Hotel and Casino, buy tickets for all of them to the Wynn art collection, and show them real art. On the way, you could even tell them about REMBRANDT and how he mixed his own paints from BUSHES and perhaps throw in a little Van Gogh, and don't forget Andy Warhol.
What would this accomplish? It would shame these would-be-artists into either going to art school or permanently giving up their brushes and spray cans until they actually could produce something that looked like TALENT!!!!
No "master" of art just started slapping paint on any canvas, they all stand on the shoulders of the previous ability of other artists.
There's a reason why there is a cliche that says, "It's like a Rembrandt." But how can you expect the city council to know about that, since most of them have probably never seen one.
