  • This class is offered to the community as a Gift.
    We at Arts for All encourage participation in our classes and we do not limit students participation by ability to contribute money.

    Your participation in our class reflects community support and interest. Your contribution and reciprocation of the gift keeps this model viable. There are many ways that you can support our reciprocal gift model.

    Contribute money:
    Each Gift offering has an established value that reflects the cash value of the class. You are welcome to pay an amount that feels comfortable to you and your financial situation. Gift forward and pay above the established value and share in the generosity by providing for others less fortunate. This is an opportunity for you to be abundant and support great educational offerings in the North Fork Valley!

    Contribute time:
    Volunteer to set up and clean up events and classes, make costumes, assist the teachers, help with Administrative tasks, volunteer to share your gifts and teach a class. Help the nonprofits (Blue Sage, Mountain Harvest Creative and The Learning Council) that are providing the class. Your time and energy are valuable and add to the success of our offerings.

    Contribute Resources:
    The classes that we offer use all kinds of supplies and resources. Donations of musical instruments, art supplies, computers, iPads, circus arts supplies for juggling, stilt walking, clowning, snacks for students, or make a recommendation.

    Be Creative:
    Let us know how you feel that you can best support and participate in our Gift Model. Mix and match the above options, have fun! We welcome your creative efforts to help our community education model thrive.
