May 3, 2016 is The Art Garden’s 5-year 501c3 Anniversary!
WE made it!
WE painted, sculpted, sewed, drew and collaged it!
WE invented, designed, organized, coordinated, collaborated,
and fund-raised it!
WE = you + me + The Art Garden’s hard-working Board of Directors
+ hundreds of people supporting our work with so many GIFTS:
donations of supplies, money and time…
all of us coming together to make The Art Garden truly
a Community-Supported Art-making place!
As a happy coincidence,
May 3, 2016 is also Valley Gives Day here in western Massachusetts.
Our Valley Gives fund-raising this year is dedicated to supporting our
2016-2017 ARTeens program.
Your support will make a difference in the lives of rural creative teens!
Please help make another year of this amazing Teen Art program possible
by donating here on May 3rd:
A very special thank you goes to artist and non-profit attorney Peter Chadwick, who first suggested our becoming a non-profit in 2010. He all but held our hands as he shepherded us through the legal process with kindness, skill and lots of clarifying emails. We are so grateful, Peter!
