#GIVING TUESDAY

This Giving Tuesday, December 3rd, support art experiences in Teton Valley.  With your support we will continue to offer affordable and accessible art experiences for everyone in our community.  

“A child without the ability to imagine and express their creativity is destine to get into trouble.”

Through our sliding-scale scholarship fund we have provided more than $7500 in tuition assistance to more than 75 students in 2019.   We regularly offer free community art workshops, art experiences for seniors as well as in-school art classes and field trips.  As our outreach continues to grow we need your help to make ART FOR ALL a reality in Teton Valley!
