Support IS183's Annual Fund

Can you imagine a life without art?

Since 1991, IS183 Art School has provided a space to create art in our community. Stepping into our studios, you can throw clay on the ceramics wheel, brush paint on a canvas, melt wax into can jump in, experiment, and try something new. In the face of budget cuts, changing national priorities, and barriers to access, IS183 is a place where everyone, regardless of income, age, or skill level, can come to make art.

Your annual tax-deductible donation to our Annual Fund….

  • Enriches the lives of 1,500 adults annually through access to visual arts...from Great Barrington to North Adams.
  • Brings the studio experience directly into the hands of 1,250 K-12th grade students annually...students who otherwise would have little or no access to the arts.
  • Supports the creative economy...IS183 employs the largest number of working artists in Western Massachusetts, allowing our artist neighbors to make a living here.

Your renewed and increased support ensures our world is one where hands-on experiences in the visual arts are accessible to everyone. Share in IS183’s growth today. Invest in IS183 Art School, invest in creativity, today!

With thanks for your support,

Lucie Castaldo
Interim Executive Director
