"Building our Community Through the Arts"

Funding for school arts programs

On January 14, 2014 the MAS Turtle Shell Fund made a grant of $4500 to the Shelton Elementary School Art Department.  This gift provided funds to support art classes with materials which would not be provided by normal school budgets.  We also provided a target for the creative passions of these students, with our Soupstock Student Art competition.

Since then we have provided funds to the Derby elementary schools and scholarships to graduatiing Shelton High School students pursuing further education in art programs.  We remain committed to the concept of enriching our community through the arts and art education, and invite you to join our cause by volunteering your time or donating funds to the MAS Turtle Shell Fund.  Click here to make a donation!
