      Help! I am in need of some clever ideas to raise money through child made art.
      Cradles to Crayons is a non-profit organization that collects and distributes essentials to children in the Philadelphia area. http://philadelphia.cradlestocrayons.org/
      I am a volunteer there and I thought it would be a great idea to get my students involved with their art. My plan is to have an art show in their giving factory and hold a silent art auction to raise funds for the organization.

      My question for the group: what are some inexpensive projects that you think people will want to pay $$ for?
      My students are in 5th and 6th grade and are very excited to help other children in need through their art!
      Thank you in advance for any suggestions:)

        I just did a project with a group I work with making clocks. You can
        buy the works at American Science and Surplus for $3, then you need a
        battery. You can put clock parts on a lot of things, I've done books,
        records, art and a few other things. In this case I had the children
        paint used CDs with 2 coats of acrylic paint (a bit treacherous but
        hey!) and then after they dried we used pins to scratch into them and
        make designs (and the numbers). It's a fun activity and a usable
        object involving reuse. I think it'll be a crowd pleaser.

        good luck,

          Hello:

          I think that your project sounds great. I would recommend checking out http://www.kickstarter.com . You can ask for any amount of a donation and create different levels for contributors.

          I think people will pay for original art by children-I'm guessing some type of release from their parents will be necessary. Maybe the art could be based on a theme of some type with a contest attached to it.

          I did a quick search using the terms kid and art and came up with a few samples:

          All the best and good luck!
