DCS Foundation- Discovery Charter School’s fourth annual For The Love Of Art Gala and Silent Auction will take place at The Downtown Container Park located at 707 Fremont St. Las Vegas 89101 on February 20, 2016. The event will begin at 12:00pm and finish at 4:00pm.
Over 400 students and teachers have created a work of art to display in the Container Park. Artwork will then be auctioned off via silent auction. Attendees can expect art, entertainment and performances by Discovery students.
Studies have shown students who study art are 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement and 3 times more likely to be awarded for school attendance. The DCS Foundation believes art education is a vital part of a child’s education and fully supports Discovery Charter School in implementing art programs to encourage creativity and independent thinking. Events such as this encourage art instruction in the classroom and provide the added funds necessary to continue doing so.
