LAG Members Susan Sheley and Mildred Grasty were present. Grasty, a former teacher in the Trigg County Public School system, said little but did say she was there “for support.” Sheley wants to expose students to art by having regional artists set up booths and sell their wares sometime between Thanksgiving and mid-December.
There would be booth fees, and a $1 admission could possibly go towards school arts programs, or could help pay teachers pay for supplies, said Sheley. She also said they would give 30 percent of their profits from the craft fair to the schools.
“We’re kind of concerned that kids are charged for art classes, and possibly it could be scholarship money,” she said. “If someone’s talented and didn’t have the money to pay the art class fee, then there would be money available for them.”
