2023 -24 Arts Education Grants

LAA Contributes $3500 to Hesse School Arts Education!


The Landings Art Association is pleased to announce their Annual 2023-2024 Penny Day Thompson Grant to Hesse School elementary art teacher Michelle Chung-Samuels. In its fifth year, these grants support programs that otherwise would not be possible.

Ms. Chung-Samuels reports that the 7th and 8th grade students are making progress with their weaving pieces, and the quality of their work is improving as they gain a deeper understanding of the intricate techniques that require patience, precision and dedication. 

The teamwork and collaboration will ultimately produce a large-scale fiber art installation, creating a sense of pride and connection among students, teachers, parents and the wider community. The photos show some individual weavings in progress.

Through their Community Outreach, the LAA strives to benefit a variety of charitable programs both monetarily and educationally. Over the years recipients include Bethesda Academy, the Parkinson’s Foundation, Skidaway Audubon, Landings Military Relief Fund, The Village Library, Golfing for a Cure, SCAD, and Landings Landlovers.
