Sandra Lehn is the Visual Arts Teacher at Red Bank Elementary school.
She says art is all around us.
"Everything that we wear has been designed by an artist.
Everything that is decorated, has been decorated by an artist.
There is art in symmetry and nature.
There's mathematics in art, there's repetition, there's pattern, there's form, there's shape."
Lehn's budget is only 100 dollars for 650 students.
But officials from 3H Group Hotels want to change that fact.
Spring Hill Suites has launched an arts initiative focusing on the support of arts in the local school systems.
On Wednesday, October 30th, Spring Hill Suites in Downtown Chattanooga will hold a fundraiser called "Save Art Night."
Meaghan Dant is the Director of
E-Commerce with 3H Group Hotels.
"We will focus pieces from students here at Red Bank Elementary, there will be some light refreshments, the Children's Chorus will sing.
There will also be some live entertainment. And we just urge people to come from 6 to 8 p.m. and just donate to this great cause."
Red Bank Elementary Principal Haley Brown is happy for the support from Spring Hill Suites.
"Without them, our art class would be working on a 100 dollar budget this year for supplies and materials for 650 students that she sees once a week."
Save Art Night takes place on Wednesday night from 6 to 8 PM.
The fundraiser is at Spring Hill Suites on Riverfront Parkway in Downtown Chattanooga.
