It’s official. I have been here 6 months! Having served here since January, it’s become clear what our studio needs. Here is the good news–
We have amazing staff and volunteers.
Our staff and volunteers provide more than just instruction—they provide support. All artist need family support or a patron, or a mentor to assist in their endeavors to learn new techniques, purchase supplies and to become independent artists .
These people make dreams come true.
The more we learn about digital techniques, firing clay, using oil based paints, the more inspired we become. But sometimes our dreams of creating something like an epic puppet movie, can be squashed into character drawings for lack of resources.
So, after several community meetings, CAS artists expressed where they want to take their work. CAS staff and volunteers developed a list of items that are outside of our limited budget.
- More studio volunteers
- Individual Storage for artists
- Regular supply of “Wonder White,” clay.
- A projector
- Regular supply of watercolor Paper, stretched canvas
- Regular supply of ceramic glaze
- Theater workshops/lessons
- Puppeteering instruction
If you are reading this and you are able to become a patron in any way, please contact us. We would love to have you as a dream maker.
