Hello Atlanta. Art is on the way.

A Life Long Work In Progress
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 Metro Atlanta. We will be adding a sponsors page and a donations page soon. 100% of all donations will go 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, paint, fabric, wood, tools, left over wrapping paper, and lot of other stuff too. Let us know what you have, and we will be more than willing to take any useful items off your hands.

Another fun way to help is to visit our seasonal art shows.  We will be holding seasonal art shows that exhibit art created by students benefiting from the program, and also art by local Atlanta artists.  Some of the art will be 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 are doing together 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
