YOU MAKE OUR WORK POSSIBLE. DONATE TODAY!
You should meet my friends, Cactus and Alpaca. They both dream of going to RISD for architectural design. And I know one day they’ll make their dreams come true because they have each other’s support... and because ¡CityArts! is a part of their lives.
Cactus and Alpaca’s passion for art is matched perfectly by the enthusiasm and skill of the instructors and staff who guide them in making it. We offer programs in our state-of-the-art six-studio arts education center, comparable to any fee-based private art program in Rhode Island.
Cactus, Alpaca, and 400 other young artists were able to enroll in our 2019 after-school programs. Access to quality art-making opportunities is increasingly scarce, especially in Providence. The majority of families we serve make less than $30,000 a year. Almost a quarter of our families make less than $15,000 annually. This is why, for 27 years, our mission has remained the same: to provide free, year-round, quality arts programming to the city’s youth, undeterred by social and economic barriers.
We need your support, now more than ever. Your tax-deductible year-end gift makes art accessible to young artists like Cactus and Alpaca, who otherwise may not have someplace creative, safe, and supportive to go when the school day ends.
Please help ¡CityArts! secure this opportunity for our youth, and make a gift today.
From all of us at Providence ¡CityArts! For Youth, thank you for your support.
