Acrylic University’s welcomes three students to its first Access to Art program, November 1, 2019. Grants of $350 for each student were raised through Jed’s recent Radiant Landscape show, and from the generous gifts of a few supporters of this program.
Access to Art is a two year program that provides quality art instruction, art supplies and a nurturing art community to youth ages 13-22 who apply, and are accepted, into the program. Each youth who applies is required to have an advocate who will be there to support and encourage them.
You can learn more about the program here.
Director of Acrylic University, Jed Dorsey, is passionate about this program. Learn the story behind Jed’s passion here.
We are so excited to have Cajun-Rain, Kristen, and Marley on the Access to Art journey.
Here’s an interview with one of our students from this summer sharing what this program would mean to her.
If you are interested in giving a grant, or partial grant, to provide access to an artistically gifted, low-income youth, please contact Jason Dorsey: firstname.lastname@example.org.
