ART for YOUth banner

The AAO’s summer program for children – ART for YOUth – is expanding due to high demand.

Unfortunately, grant funding and donations are not expanding at the same rate. Please consider donating to our program to help us bring high-quality low-cost 2D and 3D art classes with hands-on experience to children of our community – aged 3 through teen.
