Back to School: School supply lists released by most Dayton-area districts

Thanks to a major art grant through the Ohio Arts Council, Brantwood Elementary School was able to supply an artist-in-residence (AIR). The $21,600 ARTIE Grant funds the school’s Artist-in-Residence project, which allowed professional artists to work with students two days  a week for the entire school year. All students received art class once a  week and were linked to the school’s Wit and  Wisdom program. Principal Misha Monnin and teacher, Holly Shively applied for the grant. This year’s Artist-in-Resident was Wright State University graduate, Emma Smith.
