DONATE TODAY

Your gift in any amount makes a difference

For 50 years we have been dedicated to fostering the love of art for all ages and abilities.  Art Barn is located among rolling meadows and wooded acres with endless sources of inspiration. Generations of students have explored their creativity and developed their skills in our welcoming retreat environment.  

With an iconic century-old barn and four other structures we have many opportunities to make more areas accessible. In order to ensure a safe environment for our staff, students, volunteers and visitors we plan to improve lighting, entryways, and safety/security systems. Please donate today to support our access and safety initiatives, which are critical to protect and preserve the well-being of those that call Art Barn home. 

Now is the best time to give! Thanks to an anonymous donor, gifts made now through December 31 will be matched dollar-for-dollar (up to $2000). So please make Art Barn a priority in your year-end giving plans. Your contribution in any amount will help to provide a safe, accessible and welcoming environment for everyone.

Thank you!
