SAEF is pleased to announce receipt of a generous grant from the Festival of Arts Foundation. This grant will aid in funding classes for active military personnel and their spouses. In these classes students will be taught the skills to create art to sell in order to generate income wherever they may be based.
This successful and rewarding program for the military began in 2016 with a previous grant from the Festival of Arts Foundation and has generated year-round classes in a variety of media including jewelry fabrication, silk painting, printmaking, drawing and painting, and more.
The Sawdust Art Enrichment Fund is a philanthropic effort that supports education of the public about the arts while providing hands-on experience to underserved populations. In recent years, SAEF has partnered with organizations to fund classes for at-risk students, low-income seniors, military and spouses, and homeless populations in rehabilitation and recovery.
