As 2016 draws to a close and the holiday season begins, we would like to take a moment to offer our heartfelt thanks for all you do. Because of your generosity and support, fresh art had a memorable year providing fine art workshops and exhibitions to underserved and disadvantaged New Yorkers.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
We are so proud of the programs fresh art offered our artists this year: four year-long weekly workshops serving more than 35 individuals, and two exhibitions featuring the works of more than 60 artists.
All of this was possible because of you!
Now more than ever, fresh art needs you so that we can continue this rewarding work. We are a small organization, so any contribution really can change the life of a New Yorker in need:
$25 will cover the cost of paintbrushes and supplies for one artist
$50 will cover international shipping for 4 works on paper as part of fresh art‘s annual exchange exhibition with partners in London, Berlin, Melbourne, and Mumbai
$80 will cover a teacher’s salary for the day
$200 will cover framing materials for an upcoming exhibition
$1300 will provide half the funding for a10-week workshop for 12 artists
We truly could not offer these wonderful services to our artists without your support. The adults served by fresh art are marginalized, underserved, and dealing with a range of difficult issues and disabilities. fresh art‘s programs help foster the artistic process and are often the beginning of a new focus on a life filled with positive, productive, and creative purpose.
But we can’t do it without you! Your tax-deductible donation will help pay for fresh art‘s caring, accomplished teachers, art and framing materials, and operating costs involved in creating and implementing the programs our artists have come to depend on. With your help, fresh art can fund more exhibitions and workshops in the coming year and make a difference in the lives of more people.
Thank you so much for your generous support!
