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, Potter Friends

Through partnerships with local organizations, we serve the local community to provide art experiences for children and adults with special needs, senior and veteran groups, as well as art instruction in after-school programs.

SUMMER 2020 PROGRAMS

Our staff and instructors are committed to designing new and innovative solutions for the social distancing requirements.

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.

Our season began with exciting growth in programs, non-profit partners, and supporters. We were on track to add thousands of new art experiences for those in need, but we, like all, had to stop and adapt. Now our summer camps, mobile art programs, and campus classes will all be redesigned in compliance with new safety measures.

Our staff and instructors are committed to designing new and innovative solutions for the social distancing requirements. We look forward to serving in these areas again: Alzheimer’s, Holocaust Survivors, special needs with Angel View or Desert Arc, after school classes in partnership with YMCA, and the Boys and Girls Clubs.

Throughout time, art has adapted, so we do not fear this current challenge. Instead, we believe the end result will make us stronger and more appreciative. In times like these, focusing on others can bring about joy and blessings that are essential to the healing process. Art provides the avenue to that healing.

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
