South King County students invited to send artwork to Olympia
For the Reporter
With the school year well under way and the 2014 legislative session just around the corner, Sen. Joe Fain (R-Auburn) invites local elementary school students to submit original artwork for display in his Olympia office.
"As we emphasize science and math education we can't forget that school should be about teaching the whole child," said Fain, who serves on the Senate Early Learning and K-12 Education Committee. "Steve Jobs didn't build one of the most successful tech companies in the world because of his strength in programming alone. It was his understanding of how to meld art and science that revolutionized the way we interact with the world.
"Sharing the creative works of some of my youngest bosses is a great way to remind me and the hundreds of people who visit my office each session that we have to develop well-rounded citizens with artistic expression playing a major role."
Students can submit artwork directly to Sen. Fain at: P.O. Box 40447, Olympia, WA 98504-0447. Local schools and school districts also have submission information and class submissions by art teachers are welcome.
Students also are encouraged to visit the capitol with their family to see the seat of state government and view their hard work.
For more information about submitting artwork please contact Fain's office at 888-786-0598 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
