Project Name Kanakeravan Art School, Piano
Full Description The Kanakeravan Fine Arts School is located in the village of Kanakeravan just outside of Yerevan and serves both this village and a neighboring village. The School provides afterschool program in several of the fine arts including music, dance, pottery, painting and needle work to more than 125 children annually. The School has a committed staff and principal that ensure that their personal passion for the arts is upheld and taught to these children. The School receives support from the local government for administrative expenses and the students pay a modest monthly fee. This support and fees are not enough to allow the School to replace these worn pianos.
Need Armenia's villages and its children suffer from lack of facilities for children. The promotion of a child's education and preservation of our rich culture depend on quality educational institutions. The Kanakeravan Fine Arts School can meet these needs with a modest amount of support.
