When budgets tighten, schools often face pressure to make cuts that disproportionately affect the arts and humanities. If schools decrease funding to arts and music programs, art clubs may have difficulty paying for supplies, let alone affording special experiences for students. Crowdfunding can help you get the money to pay for brushes, paints, pencils, and canvas, among other necessities. And if you surpass your fundraising goal, it might allow for a field trip to a local museum or allow access to more expensive materials. Look into special deals from museums, such as discounts for students, and if they don't offer any, call to ask if they can make your club a special offer.
