Dear ASI Friends, Volunteers, Teachers, and Supporters,
Thank you for all you do for the ASI community! All year round, we are grateful for all of the individuals that volunteer their time and resources to help us bring creativity and compassion to youth across Philadelphia.
You truly are the unsung heros. Without you all sharing the joy of creativity and compassion of teaching kindness, we could not work towards our mission to transform lives through the arts.
Whether you’ve volunteered with us, donated art materials, supported us through sponsorship, or partnered with us in any way, we feel very fortunate to work with so many who have received the call to give back.
This December marks Art Sphere’s 21st birthday! We’re so grateful for the last 21 years spent strengthening communities through the arts and are looking forward to the future.
Wishing you a warm and happy Thanksgiving!
Giving Tuesday: December 3rd, 2019
We cannot continue on our mission without your support. Please consider donating to Art Sphere, Inc. for Giving Tuesday on December 3rd. Over the past seven years, Giving Tuesday has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
Art Sphere Inc. is volunteer run. We use donations to support our programs and to provide our students with take-home craft boxes filled with art supplies. We’ve found that when students have art supplies available, they are likely to share the lessons they learn at ASI programs with siblings, friends, and neighbors.
All are welcome at our events! We love to see new faces and of course those who have been with us before.
