This is just a small sampling of some of the beautiful work accomplished by SAIL 2016 participants.

Gel Press was a 2016 co-sponsor of SAIL, through a generous donation of Gel Press Plates that were used in our wonderful Creating Value Workshop, July 10-13, 2016.
The art produced during Creating Value was featured in short poetic videos produced by participants.

In addition, participants received a full setup of materials to take back to their classrooms.

  • We believe...

    that all Alabamians should have equal opportunities to discover and
    to develop their talents.

  • We believe...

    that all Alabamians should have a sequential and comprehensive
    education in the arts.

  • We believe...

    that all Alabamians should gain enough knowledge about the arts in order to understand their own cultural heritage and the cultural heritage of others.
