‘Tis the Giving Season! As Graffiti HeArt looks back on the 2015 year, we are very proud to have made possible for two high school students to attend the Cleveland Institute of Art’s CIA Pre-College Program this Summer through 2 fully funded Graffiti HeArt scholarships.
These art education opportunities would not be possible without the financial donations that have been given to Graffiti HeArt’s cause throughout the year.
Graffiti HeArt again has plans to send a minimum of 2 teenagers through CIA’s Pre-College Program next year with hopes to increase that number in 2016 with your help. If you are interested in sponsoring a fully funded Graffiti HeArt Scholarship with the CIA Pre-College Program, a generous donation of $2,000 would help send one undeserved youth through the Pre-College Program. With the 2015 drawing to an end, this 100% tax-deductible donation will be a perfect way to pay it forward! Every dollar helps, and with your generous donation, Graffiti HeArt will get closer to its goal of increasing its impact on youth in the arts.
Graffiti HeArt is grateful for the many opportunities that it has had this year to promote graffiti mural art and artists through exciting projects, including the successful mural projects with Our Alleys Revitalized, Campus International Schools, The Ingenuity Fest in Cleveland, and the Greetings Tour that made its way to Cleveland via Ohio City. Projects such as these have been made possible by local artists with the backing and support of wonderful organizations, helping to promote the artists and the graffiti art form in positive ways in our community. Stay tuned to Graffiti HeArt for future exiting projects coming our way in 2016!
