Dear Friends of Pacific Art League,
A year ago, we wrote to you and asked for your support of Pacific Art League and our newly minted Community Engagement Programs. Now, just a short time later we are happy to update you on the success of those programs.
A year ago, we were just developing our New Day Program in partnership with Downtown Streets Team. We are now on our third cohort and classes are stronger than ever. We make a point of visiting each class and am amazed at how organically we have built a new community of artists and the excitement in the brand-new experiences these artists share at PAL.
The model has proved so successful that we are now in our first cohort of Veterans suffering from PTSD injuries. With each passing class, we can see the community forming-slowly, but growing stronger.
We will begin a new program with East Side Prep in the new year-teaching digital art to kids who have shown exceptional talent and drive. We also continue our work with Redwood City Police Activities League and the Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula.
Pacific Art League has always been about community. Artists need a place where they can come together and share and grow and create.
This holiday season, we hope we can count on your support with a gift of to help us sustain and build upon that strong foundation and to better serve all our artists, students, instructors and friends.
Our best wishes for a happy holiday season filled with light, color and of course, ART.
