Artistry In Funding Art Education

Josh Morton/Facebook

Josh Morton not only teaches art, he wants students to be able to continue their educations in art. 

So the Grants Pass High School teacher set up a scholarship fund to help his art students afford college. 

And he put his own artwork--heavy on the musical artists--up for auction to add to the scholarship fund.

We visit with the teacher/artist about his work--his own, and encouraging the work of his students. 

ADDITIONAL LINK: see all the scholarships at the Josephine County Education Fund.
