Annual Fund

Each year, the Art Colony relies on the generosity of supporters to host our programs from classes to community outreach programs, Artist Talks to internships.  Donors contribute one third of the operating costs.  Your investment makes a different and shapes the future of art access in our community.

Donors automatically become members and will receive unique benefits.

There are lots of other great ways to offer support including:
