Atlanta Art Foundation

About

Atlanta Art is a non-profit project supported by our sponsors, local Atlanta artists, local Atlanta art teachers, TOMTRO, and you. Our mission is simple. Help support local art programs by supplying materials as simple as pencils and sketch paper. Our monthly art shows, showcase art created with support from AtlantaArt.org sponsors, donated materials, and local Atlanta art donated by local Atlanta artists.

AtlantaArt.org is being developed as an art community portal that helps local business and citizens support the arts at their local Atlanta public schools and at the Boys and Girls Club of Atlanta.  We will be adding a sponsors page and a donations page soon.  100% of all donations will to towards art supplies for local art programs.  If you would like to donate supplies, please contact Audrey at audrey@atlantaart.org for more information.  Examples of supplies that  can be donated are boxes, pencils, paper, crayons, kilns, paint, fabric, wood, tools, lathe, scrap canvas, and the list goes on.  Let us know what you have, and we will be more than willing to take any useful items off your hands.  All donations are tax deductible.

We will be holding monthly art shows that exhibit art created by students benefiting from the program, and also art by local artists for sale to help raise funds to benefit the Atlanta Art Foundation.  If you would like to donate artwork to help the cause, please contact Audrey at audrey@atlantaart.org.  If you would like to see what will be available for purchase at the next art show, check out our Art For Sale page.  We will have a newsletter set up soon so you can keep up to date with what’s going on in the local art community and what we’re doing to support it.

It’s our belief that through exercising our youth’s imaginations, the arts help students make new connections, transcend previous limitations, and think “outside the box.” Creativity is the key ingredient to solving problems that sometimes seem larger than life.

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” -Albert Einstein
