The current economic situation in the U.S. has demanded budget cuts in all areas of American life, including education. Faced with these unprecedented cuts, many arts programs are losing their funding. Many art educators are finding it a challenge to provide art education without compromising the quality of the curriculum and program. Through a comparative analysis of materials and fundraisers and a document analysis of money saving tips, strategies are suggested for art teachers to save and find money.
