Kanakeravan Art School, Piano


The Kanakeravan Fine Arts School is located in the village of Kanakeravan about 30 minutes 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 two worn pianos.

Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

The 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.
Short Term Impact
The local economy will benefit from the local purchase of the two pianos, their delivery and tuning.
Long Term Impact
The 125 students currently at the School and future students will benefit from music instruction on proper pianos.
Sponsors Benefits
Your donation to the Kanakeravan Art School will be recognized with a plaque on each of the pianos, your name listed as a sponsor on the Paros Foundation website and in appropriate press related to this important project. The Paros Foundation stands ready to help you arrange a visit and tour the School when you are in Armenia.
