Here at Pratt, we think the transformative experience of making art is for everyone, and your support makes that a reality.
Support Pratt’s Annual Fund and Give the gift of ART FOR ALL!
You know the value of hands-on creativity and the immersive, energizing experience in art-making that Pratt provides. But did you know that class fees only cover half the cost? In order to keep our programs affordable, we raise funds to cover the rest. Join us in our effort to make art accessible to everyone by making a donation this year.
Your support goes a long way. In addition to keeping costs low for thousands of students each year, your generous gift will allow Pratt to continue to provide tuition assistance for those in need, to present free public events like artist lectures and demonstrations, and to offer free weekend classes for neighborhood youth. These programs have a huge impact in our community, for students like Jite:
I see Pratt as a huge influence in my life. Growing up next to Pratt I discovered my passion for art through Pratt’s free art classes for youth, and didn’t stop there. Later, I took classes in printmaking and worked in the studio as often as possible. Pratt was a driving force in my decision to build a portfolio and attend art school, eventually graduating from the California College of Arts. Today, I attend the University of Washington working towards a Masters in User Interface Design, a new field which combines programming and design. I believe none of this would be possible had Pratt not been so welcoming a place to discover art.
