Blackshear Elementary Fine Arts Academy is a dynamic school in the heart of Austin, Texas. We are a true community school that utilizes local resources to enrich our students academic and artistic capabilities. Please consider giving to our donation campaign to help us grow and maintain our rich fine arts programming.
The Fine Arts program at Blackshear Elementary Fine Arts Academy is focused on providing students the opportunity to discover new talents, build courage and self-worth through the arts. Blackshear is a Title I school and our goal is to give students access to the rich arts community in Austin. Over 70% of our students receive free or reduced lunch and are unable to participate and pay for extra curricular activities. We are home to a diverse student population, with students from Congo, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Mexico, Rwanda, East and West Austin. Through our partnerships with local organizations and community members, our students have access to new opportunities that have been previously out of their reach.
Because my granddaughter asked for my help and also for the children to be able to enjoy this experience.
Exposure to the arts is such an important part of the developing brain. We must keep this experience alive for our children
