Artist Support



These last two years have been difficult for all of us in many ways.  The arts have been hit particularly hard because so much of the work we do requires physical closeness and interaction.  While prioritizing the health and safety of our participants, instructors, and staff, we also need to support our community of artists.

For that reason, we are excited to offer the Summer Academies in the Arts program once again!  It provides advanced young artists the tools they will need as they develop their technical and artistic skills in preparation for applications and audition material for college and career pursuits.  It also provides much needed employment for our team of instructors ⎼ practicing artists themselves ⎼ who saw many of their commissions, gigs, and contracts cancelled.

If you are able, please consider making a gift of any amount to support the Summer Academies in the Arts program.  Your contribution will make a significant impact by supporting the artists who make it possible.
