Re: "typical" art budget?


Date: Fri Jul 23 2004 - 07:22:05 PDT

Hi Kathleen - Last year was my first year also (art-on-a-cart) and the art
budget was $2250 for K-8 -- nearly 700 students! I actually went over budget
about $75. It was really tight, but I purchased reproductions, paper,
paints, drawing materials. The basics, really. I inherited lots of crafts
materials - pompoms, craft sticks, chenille stems, etc. - but only a very little bit
of fine art materials!! I'll have a brand new classroom to go to in
September, so I'm waiting to see how it will be equippped. I did give my principal
the info Judy recommended from Marvin Bartel's site. Good luck, let me know
what happens! Sandy J
