Hello Everyone!

My name is Maria Esmeralda Renteria. I am launching a new education program to teach children of all ages and adults about an art form known as Printmaking.

      I am collaborating with The Mexican Museum to launch this new education program. This will be the first education program that the Mexican Museum will have in 10 years.

      I am a volunteer and do not receive any compensate for my time and skills.  As a Graduate student, the only benefit is a 70 page minimum paper I will write about for my Master’s thesis. Unfortunately, as a Graduate student I do not have the means  to contribute this new education program. The only thing I can afford is my time, skills, and knowledge that I possessed.  This is where you come into the picture.

      I am creating this new education program to enhance the visitor's experience at The Mexican Museum. The new bilingual education program called, "What is Printmaking?" features an interactive wall exhibit, several art activities, and education brochures in Spanish and English. Visitors visiting the museum can participate in an art activity, everyday with this education program. In addition, the program will provide art kits, using education collections from The Mexican Museum, to schools throughout San Francisco and the Bay area.

      Please help me launch The Mexican Museum's education program to educate the San Francisco and the Bay area about the complexity and richness of Latino Art throughout the Americas, and to encourage dialogue between visitors and youth through the new art activities. Help me educate others about art, which unfortunately  many schools are not able to provide.

      Help me launch this new education program by donating to this cause. In return, I will be transparent with the usage of the donation by posting the cost of making this new program.  I will also thank each and every one of you personally.

      Please share this appeal with all of your friends, family and co-workers. Thank you for your support.

 

Sincerely,

Maria Esmeralda Renteria
