You're invited to a silent art auction curated by The Brigade & Deweywood to raise funds to bring interactive learning to James John Elementary.

Nate Lacy (Mimicking Birds)

Drinks brought to you by Union Wine Co.Widmer Brothers

Where the money goes

The funds raised will be used to put iPads in the classrooms of James John Elementary School in St Johns. The use of iPads in the classroom gives educators another tool to use, in a multitude of ways. Budget cuts have left James John without a music and art program. Teachers are searching for new and innovative ways to bring the arts into the classroom, and the iPad offers a unique platform. Sam Leach, a third grade teacher at James John, asked the question, "what does learning sound like?" Sam, like many other teachers at James John is a musician, and uses the iPad to showcase famous artists and play music for his class. Sam adds that the iPad has proven to enhance students learning experiences, from skill development with real time feedback, to deepening conceptual understanding all in a intuitive interface that sparks the imagination
