As a young growing organization our needs outstrip our financial resources. It is only with the help of donors like you that we are able to push forward. We only raise around $12,000 a year and we compliment your donations with a lot of hard work, volunteerism and determination.

This year we are negotiating for a small school building. It will allow us to stabilize our facilities in dedicated rooms. It will double our floor space and teaching spaces. This allows us to offer advanced classes and will increase our student population from 180 to 480 per session. The school also has a number of social spaces and a kitchen. It is the vision of a professional school and has already inspired pride in our students! This building does have earthquake damage and will cost us over $63,000 to fix over the next three years.

Our goal this year is to raise $50,000 to do structural and utilities infrastructure repairs. We are already have way there and need everyone’s help, small and large to reach this goal. Please share our vision with your friends and family.

With each donation you help us to build opportunity for the artists to develop a job with our resources. Join our community of amazing donors, volunteers, students, professors and staff. Together we are all making a difference and creating change!
