Reading With Pictures, an educational non-profit that promotes the use of comics and graphic novels in the classroom, is actively soliciting donations of original art, prints and commissions for an art auction fundraiser to be held in December.
RWP is also accepting proposals for 1-10 page short stories (both story and art) to be included in a full-color, all-ages benefit anthology intended for publication in the summer of 2010. The proceeds from both will be used as seed money for the organization and will be put toward its application for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.
The earnings will also be used to fund the non-profit’s initial slate of projects, such as a groundbreaking research study undertaken in conjunction with Northwestern University to determine the best methods for using comics and graphic novels in the classroom.
