Discover What Inspires You

The Drawing Studio Board of Directors and its Annual Fund Committee – Andy Rush, Brenna Lacey, Herk Rosenzweig, and Nancy Chilton – wish to thank everyone who generously donated to our Annual Fund Drive. These gifts are changing lives, by allowing us to:

  • place teaching artists in libraries and other community centers to work with seniors who aren’t able to come to classes at our downtown studio.
  • partner with the Primavera Foundation, developing innovative immersive arts programming for children and adults who are transitioning out of poverty and homelessness.
  • ignite creativity in children and teens with year-round youth arts programming, including Art of Summer, Boys and Girls Clubs partnerships, and after school classes.
  • offer affordable art classes to everyone, regardless of age, ability, background, or other life circumstances.

Although we did not reach our goal of 158K, we are 75% there. If you have not had a chance to give, now’s the time!

We hope you take a moment to bask in the knowledge that your gift has helped provide transformative experiences for so many people!

With deep appreciation,
The Board and Staff of TDS
