Program Details

Old Town Artisan Studios is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to provide positive art experiences for all people despite age, disability or financial condition. We offer art instruction within our magnificent 3-acre art campus and through our Outreach and Mobile Art Programs. We believe art is healing and has a positive impact on each of us and the world around us, so we provide art opportunities and creative memories for our valley residents, especially to the underserved individuals who need it most.

Our beautiful art campus allows families and friends to experience classes in many art mediums. We are also the kiln and supply center to allow us to bring art to dozens of non-profit partners and senior centers throughout the Coachella Valley where we serve kids in after-school programs, children and adults with special needs, and senior groups.

We need Ambassadors to help us spread the word about our work and mission. This is a program where we ask you to join us for just $15.00 a month or a $150.00 annual donation. In turn, we would like to thank you by giving you an annual $25.00 gift certificate to be used for credit towards a class, workshop or bisque in the Paint Your Own Pottery studio.

Once you visit our beautiful facility and learn about our work and mission, all we ask is that you share it with friends and family. And perhaps invite friends for a tour of our historic facility in La Quinta – a special place and the former home of Cunard’s/La Quinta Grill and Homestead Restaurant property.

Thank you for considering the role of Ambassador for Art for Old Town Artisan Studios.
