One of our missions at Artech is to offer under-served community members free or discounted classes that they might not otherwise be able to afford.  We want to inspire and empower students through creative programming.  Please consider sponsoring a student or an entire class so that we can keep inspiring future artists.

However, our mission goes beyond simply teaching them how to create.  We believe in the transformative power of creativity. We have seen first-hand how exposure to the arts in an encouraging and safe environment has helped people to find their voice and passion.  The act of making something with your own hands instills a sense of pride and accomplishment that boosts confidence.  It teaches you to persevere in the face of challenges and not give up, both skills translating well to other areas of their lives.

In November and December, we will be partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada to provide free art classes to 20 sets of matches!  To help us underwrite the cost of the donated classes, we are selling glass pumpkins, ranging from $15-$50 each.  Half the proceeds  from the sale of each pumpkin will go towards the BBBS Scholarship Fund and is also tax deductible.  Come see our glass pumpkin patch at the Artech office and we can also create custom color.  Donations are also always welcome!
