BENEFITING: Artistically Me, Inc.
Artistically Me! an art education program has experienced the privilege of serving youth and families in southwest Atlanta and surrounding neighborhoods for over three years. This non-profit organization, founded and staffed by local Atlanta artists, recruits students between the ages of 4 and 13 and takes them through the fun and growth of art, dance, and theater.
Our mission at Artistically Me! is to provide our students with a quality education in a variety of art media, which will equip them with vital tools and techniques that will be essential throughout their adult lives. Our programs and curriculum are dedicated to utilizing creative methods of discipline and guidance to foster inspiration. Our educational focus uses each lesson to evoke culture and develop confidence. Thus, we research a breadth of educational philosophies to create lessons especially designed for our students.
Currently we are launching a fundraising campaign to solidify and expand our presence in southwest Atlanta. In addition to summer camp and after school programming, Artistically Me! will have art, dance & theater daytime classes for seniors, weekend classes for adults, paid summer art apprenticeships for teenagers, and out-of-school break camps for children. We are seeking $100,000 in donations from individuals, organizations and businesses. It’s up to us, our neighborhood, family, and friends to bring more creative outlets to the community. We are asking you to make a donation of any amount. All donations to Artistically Me! are tax-deductible. If you have questions and concerns please reach out to us at info@ArtisticallyMe.org.
Artistically Me! exists for the creative movers and shakers of our future. We have had 3 years of successful summer camps in southwest Atlanta. Campers get the opportunity to experience daily art intensives that are enhanced by focused personal development exercises such as yoga, team building, and exploratory trips.
The funds that we raise will help to secure a facility, where we will be able to welcome more students for summer camp and jump-start our after school program and daytime adult programming the following fall. Once fully supported, Artistically Me! will become an even greater catalyst for artistic, economic and educational development in southwest Atlanta to help sustain the neighborhood and produce creative and revolutionary adults who can create and protect the world around them. Together we can make the change, which the children and community desperately need. Support the arts! Support our youth! Support Artistically Me!
