So you love the arts at CB and want to get involved? Great! We love our parent and community support. Here are a few ways you can participate:
Join FOTA: FOTA (Friends of the Arts) is a parent group that supports all of the Visual, Media, and Performing Arts at Christian Brothers. FOTA collects donations on behalf of the arts that fund unique needs like more musical instruments, costume racks, or even arts based trips or workshops for CB students. Every year, rising sophomores through seniors can apply for $250 FOTA grants to help pay for arts lessons or supplies over the summer, and bring their experiences and knowledge back to share with their peers. FOTA also organizes volunteers as ushers and box office staff, chaperones, and event staff. Like what you see?
- Contact FOTA at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about meeting times, volunteer opportunities or to have your questions answered
- Donate to FOTA through the “Ticket Hub” on CB’s Home page
- If you would like to volunteer, please click on “Getting Involved” under the “Quicklinks” section on the home page. All CB volunteers need to be fingerprinted and have a current TB test, and this page can get you started.
Set Build Saturdays: For about 16 weeks out of the school year, parent and student volunteers show up to paint and build scenery for our fall play and spring musical. No construction experience is necessary. This is a great chance to get a behind-the-scenes theatre experience. If this sounds like something you or your student would like to try, contact email@example.com for more information.
Be an Arts fan!: Follow our blog, share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter, and come to our arts events. From choral and instrumental music to the LaSalle Art Show to Open Mics and Theatre productions, there are plenty of opportunities to see CB kids shine. Ticketed events can be found on the “Giving & Ticket Hub” under “The Arts”. Come on out and bring some friends!
