NEA & Santa Fe


Did you know that Wise Fool New Mexico is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts? The NEA is an important funder for arts organizations, granting over $750,000 in funds last year to 72 organizations and artists in Santa Fe County alone.
Yet this government agency’s budget is less than 1/10 the cost of an Air Force One jet, at about 45 cents per person in the US!

We’ll offer the same camp on Friday the 14th of April which is another no-school day.

Want more circus? Registration is now open for spring break camp (March 20th-24th) for 7-13 year olds. Five days of circus from 9:00-3:30 and scholarships are available.
