Colorful & Spooky Monsters

We were so happy to be able to help Ms. Evanson’s art class get the supplies that they need through our Out of Step Books Arts Education Charity program and received this wonderful letter from this wonderfully passionate teacher today.

They are very excited to use the new tools and materials they received to create 3-D monster sculptures and we can’t wait to see more from this fantastic group of high schoolers. Viva la Creativity!!

Visual FX Art Classroom in Alabama

We were so excited to receive a letter and some awesome photos from Mr. Screws, an art teacher in Alabama who truly cares about his students. To keep his scholars  creative and motivated, he developed an impressive Visual FX program at the school. He explains,“We live in a city where VFX, and art in general, is NOT seen as a realistic career goal. In a situation like ours, we must create opportunities for ourselves.”

We completely share in Mr. Screws passion for the arts and through our Out of Step Books Arts Education Charity program, we were able to donate to this special classroom to help them get the supplies that they needed to let their imaginations soar.

Viva la Creativity!!
