We believe in the power of the arts.
Think of all of the things we interact with on a daily basis and how those things would change if not for the arts. Just imagine what we would all be doing during this time of social distancing if the arts weren’t a part of our lives. We are all watching movies, listening to music, and reading books we haven’t gotten to yet. Maybe you are even drawing, painting or coloring as a way to express all that you are feeling. None of those things would be possible if it weren’t for the arts.
The Eastern Iowa Arts Academy relies on grants, corporate, business and individual donations to keep our programs accessible to all area youth. Your donations support classes in the schools, through our Afterschool Enrichment Program, and at our Music and Arts Studios. We are so proud to be able to offer financial assistance to students and families in need, and your dollars help make that possible. We are also offering free classes through our new Virtual Classroom to keep the creativity flowing during social distancing.
We hope that you will consider supporting us – each donation, no matter how big or small, brings the arts to all interested students and helps us to grow our creative community. Art is essential and makes the world a more beautiful place!
