President Barack Obama will visit Manor New Tech High School this Thursday as part of the president's Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Tour. The Manor New Tech High School opened in 2007 with intentions of preparing students to succeed in an information-based and technologically advanced society. This visit is very near and dear to our hearts at Gallery Direct, as we have been a business partner of Manor Schools for several years now.  Several of their hallways are adorned with artwork created by Gallery Direct. Manor's executive team asked us to donate artwork for the President's visit. We are honored to be able to be a small part in this huge initiative.

Often when school budgets are tight, art programs are first to get cut. This was the case at the Manor School District near Austin, Texas.  Gallery Direct heard about their situation and immediately wanted to help get art into these students lives.

Studies have shown that art in schools increases test scores and productivity.  Students also behave better when they are in a school that has clean hallways, classrooms and common areas.  Art gives students a sense of pride in their school and inspiration to achieve thier dreams.

Gallery Direct worked with the Manor School teachers and students to bring thier walls to life with inspiration.  Checkout our before and after photos of the cafeteria below.
