We need to build out add'l space at the Madison Annex, to continue our super art classes in Old Town when Duke Annex closes. Help us build!
"I've just done the best thing I can do in my life!" the young man announced as he stepped out of the school registration office. "What is that?" I asked. "I signed up for an art class!"
All who have had their lives enriched by the awakening of their creativity through the experience of ART know how he felt Help us continue to make it possible!
If everyone who enjoyed our services this year would contribute only $30, our build-out costs would be fully covered!!!
Of course, we know that many of these students are children, or scholarship students, or those who struggle even to pay the tuition. so we hope that those who can will donate, and those who can help us make up the difference will donate a little extra!
I'm constantly inspired by the energy, enthusiasm—indeed, passion!—expressed by our students at The Art League School.
In my more than 25 years at The Art League, I've seen and heard and felt that passion expressed by so many artists and students, and it inspires me to work toward ensuring it will still be available for artists another 25 years from now!
Our replacement of the classrooms lost to the current Waterfront development will ensure the continuation of our mission. And if we can raise the funds needed to accomplish the buildout—through this "30-something" Madison build-out project —we can continue to provide the classes and still keep the tuition low, so they will be broadly accessible.
Will you help, by making a donation of whatever amount you feel appropriate? Lots of $30-somethings would have a significant impact on this project. Please consider making a donation on Wednesday, May 2, through the Alexandria Community Trust's Spring2ACTion day! Your online support on that day will also make it possible for us to win additional grant money.
