Art education is one of the chief goals of Art in Bloom and over the years the non-profit organization has funded art projects and student awards at North, South, Phoenix,& Grants Pass High Schools and Medford Independent School. In the present economy school budgets have been forced to cut programs like art. Art in Bloom is here to help see these programs thrive.
