Help Support the Next Generation of Artists, Designers, Photographers and Architects… Become an A&DAA Member.

Max+Ginsburg+2013.smIf you are an A&D alumni or supporter of the arts, you know what it takes to succeed in the artistic fields. With money even tighter these days, it is not only difficult for students to get the supplies they need, but it has become increasingly difficult for them to further their education as well. The Art and Design Alumni Association is committed to supporting every A&D student by providing the best resources to help them succeed in the future. We need your help to support the students and school. You can help by: Donations – Your donations fund professional development workshops for A&D students and much needed art supplies for A&D classrooms. Scholarships – You can choose an existing A&DAA scholarship to donate too or start a new scholarship fund. Mentors and Speakers – Art and Design students need YOU! Nothing is more inspirational to a student than a mentor with experience in the arts. As former Art and Design students, we have all shared similar experiences and struggles as we tried to break into the field. The Art and Design Alumni Association would like to provide the current A&D students with invaluable opportunities such as internships, workshops, and lectures. Join us in our efforts to inspire, support, and encourage the next generation of artists. Click here to help. This page will bring you to our donation page. Thank You for your support.
