MAKE A DONATION

A little goes a long way. If ten people donate $25, that’s $250 or is it? Actually, it’s lights, power, art materials and glazes, newsletters and postage, school programs and special events…

Just think if ten was really fifteen or twenty people? Together, we donate a little and watch it go a long way, enriching everyone’s experience at the art center.

Your contribution is tax deductible. Thanks for helping us “Make Art A Part Of Your Life.” Stop in to the Art Center and donate.
