Now more than ever, art can heal…

“I have been coming to the Studio for 10 years. I like creating items out of clay, especially the totem pole. I have met some very special friends during our class. I really love coming to the Studio.”
– Paul Maloney, Pottery Friends

trying to help when it comes to art

To help with the lack of art at home, Old Town Artisan Studios is currently donating Art To-Go kits to local families in need.

The saying, “Take one day at a time” is so vital right now. We assure you that we are taking each day and filling it with thousands of ‘thank yous,’ all because of you.
– Victory Grund, Founder

Thank You from Our Founder

During these unprecedented times, our organization is committed to continue the mission of bringing healing to the world through art. As the founder of Old Town Artisan Studios, I have received an incredible outpouring of love and support for this mission. We want to say “THANK YOU” for every donation from $10 to $1,000 and more. Every dollar received went directly back to our community and into the hands of those who need it most. Despite the overwhelming restrictions, we are grateful for your confidence in our ability to deliver these meaningful art experiences. We could not have accomplished any of this without your support, so we are incredibly grateful.
