Events: Fundraiser

      

                                              IT’S BEEN A GREAT YEAR!

Woo hoo!  We are celebrating our 2-year anniversary in January when Artaluma began offering affordable non-profit arts education for Petaluma’s youth and adults.   

 We are asking for your help to keep Artaluma flourishing and provide affordable financial aid so that everyone can experience the power and joy of art-making.

WHY IS OUR WORK IMPORTANT?
Our ‘creativity center’  removes any fixed expectations and fear associated with making art, where people feel encouraged to take risks and find freedom and joy in the ability to express their unique artistic voice in the world, no matter their level of ‘talent.’ This boosts confidence, imagination, creativity, and critical thinking. When members of society are thriving we all benefit.

We need your help to continue pursuing our mission & vision.

Your donation will go towards scholarships for youth and adults in our visual arts programs and for helping us keep our 1908 building operational (we have a leaky roof!).

$25 pays for art supplies for one child’s semester of classes.
$50 pays ¼ of a child art class scholarship.
$150 pays for an Adult Improv class scholarship.
$500 pays for two preteen & teen choir classes.
$1,000 pays for a section of our roof (need 50 donors at this level).

Give a child, teen, or adult the gift of arts experience & education today. DONATE HERE.

From all of us at Artaluma, Happy Holidays. And thank you for being a part of our movement & thank you for helping to continue supporting our mission.

-Elizabeth & the Artaluma Team
