Project Knowledge offered an Art Training Program this past summer!

Young local student artists received training and art supplies to help create their own professional artist portfolio.

Students who were chosen to remain in the program were given the opportunity for additional training in Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Illustrator in Phase 2 of PK&Art. 


PK&Art is more than an art class.  Your student is participating in an active research program. In order to pay your students as participants in the research we will need parental permission. 

Click the links below to sign from your computer. 

Contact us if you need the forms to be mailed to you.

Please read & Sign the digital forms. The Institutional Review Board Form (IRB) has two places for you signature. The Media Release Form allows us to post images of your child on the website.  You must sign these forms in order for your child to be paid for participating in the VSU Project Knowledge Study.

Participant Payments

Instead of issuing checks to your child as a participant, we are using Go-Henry debit cards. Go-Henry also offers a mobile app that helps kids learn to budget, save, donate and invest. Parents are required to create a Go Henry account. The account requires a Parent balance of $5.00 for the first 30 days. All of your child's funds will be deposited before the end of the first 30 days and they are not required to use the Go Henry app.  There is a monthly fee after the first 30 days. You will be reminded to close your account if you choose to do so. If you do not close the account you will be charged a monthly administration fee. 

Sign up with the Go Henry App for payment to be made to the students.
