LilySarahGrace

In April 2012, Abby Ballin Co-Founded a non profit organization called LilySarahGrace (LSG) which supports teachers in underfunded public elementary schools to reach all learners through the arts. Initially providing grants in the form of supplies to teachers who could show how they would teach their curriculum while incorporating the arts, LSG has since added a professional development leg to the organization. Now not only do they lend the materials needed to bring the arts back into the classroom, but the tools, resources and knowledge to do so.

In addition to Co-Founding LSG, Abby is the Creative Director and head of marketing. Producing and Directing awareness films, fundraisers, events and campaigns such as LSG's COLOR OUTSIDE THE LINES campaign (see below).

COLOR OUTSIDE THE LINES

A compilation of drawings based on the concept that all great thinkers think outside the box, LilySarahGrace enlisted some of the best, brightest and most unique thinkers of our generation to raise awareness for arts infused education in underfunded public schools. LSG handed artists from a number of different disciplines a sketchpad and a marker and asked them to create a simple line drawing.
