The Lawrence Art Guild Association was established in 1963 by a small group of artists and received the designation of a non-profit arts organization in Lawrence, Kansas. Over the years the Guild has supported multiple art exhibits, a yearly Holiday Art Fair and Art in the Park (voted best event in Lawrence).
The Guild has assisted artists through grant programs and monetary donations for artists who have lost art supplies through misfortune.
Our largest contribution is to the Douglas County high school art students. Beginning in 2017, the Art Guild has donated $9,000 each year to be divided among each high school art teacher. This program has enabled art teachers in our county to purchase art supplies, assist students with college preparations and purchase larger equipment not included in the school budgets.
THIS YEAR IS DIFFERENT for everyone. In 2019 The Lawrence Art Guild had to cancel both Holiday Art Fair and Art in the Park. These two events alone fund our High School Gifting Program and day to day operations have eaten into the budget.
We know that everyone is feeling the stress of the Pandemic but we are asking that you open your hearts to assist in raising money for the Douglas County School Gifting Program. Please consider a donation and know that any amount will assist us in our mission. We thank you in advance for your consideration.
