Thank you for your interest in participating in the SmartStart Soirée and Art Auction Event supporting MLK Montessori School! Here we will be posting a gallery of art pieces MLK Montessori students will produce in early 2018 for our fundraising event. We will ask you to look through the gallery and find a piece that inspires you.
Then you are invited to meet at the school with your student artist to discuss their work. We'd prefer you meet with the child in person, but we can work around this if you are not able to visit the school.
We look forward to seeing your creativity and the final pieces inspired by our kids! If you have questions, you can reach us at:

In April 2017, MLK Montessori students produced original works of art for Week of the Young Child. 10 artists selected works by 11 students. After meeting with the students themselves or viewing the childrens' interviews with MLK staff, the artists produced amazing original works inspired by the creativity of our students. Watch the videos below to see the results. These pieces were sold at our live auction event September 2017, and allowed us to raise over $6,000 to support our early childhood program for low income students.
