“I do not want art for a few any more than I want education for a few or freedom for a few.”

William Morris//Artist

Why Give

All children need the opportunity to develop creative problem solving, and the vocabulary and tools to appreciate and create art. Creativity is the #1 attribute sought by today’s employers. Ongoing art making in schools increases:

  • Academic achievement
  • School attendance
  • College readiness
  • Joy

What Your Donation Provides

Our two major expenses include people and art supplies. People make our program work. Without artists, our art supplies would remain unused.  Our program manager and executive director create bonds with schools and the community. Our art supplies provide the materials for children to blossom into artists. Here are samples of what your donation dollars fund.
