Engelhard Elementary School

 KACF is in our seventh year of partnership with Engelhard Elementary. Each year, we send four of our artists to conduct art classes as part of Engelhard’s Enrichment Monday Program. This program provides children the opportunity to sign up for non-traditional classes like karate, ballet, violin, and specific visual art disciplines.

Harrison County 

The Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) has generously donated $8,300 to the Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation (KACF), to be used for educational programming in Southern Indiana schools.  Schools already benefiting from this donation are North Harrison Upper Elementary School and Lanesville Elementary School, both in Southern Indiana. 

  Projects for these students successfully combine art with other subjects in their core curriculum, and have included a tile-making project focusing on world geography and a clay sculpture project based on medieval history.

Watson Lane Elementary School

 Watson Lane's fourth grade students got a most unique experience... stone carving with Artist Al Nelson.  Students used professional tools to create decorative stone tablets for their courtyard. They also helped carve and design a bird bath to memorialize Sherry Eley, a former Watson Lane teacher who recently died of cancer.  Additionally, the students used  small pieces from the carved stones to create necklaces for themselves and for students in the other grade levels.
