2018 Capital Campaign

asccfullsizeHelp the Art School of Columbia County have a home!

2018 is an important year for the Art School.

We have a generous offer to receive the donation of the historic 1880 Schoolhouse and the surroundings gardens (0.81 acres) we use as our home base for exhibits, classes, and community outreach programs.  Receiving this historic structure as a donation will allow us to continue to serve our community for years to come.  The structure is restored and in excellent condition and is currently used by ASCC year-round.  In our sixth year of operation, ASCC serves over 1300 members of our community annually with free and low-cost art programming for all ages.

To provide this home for art in our community, ASCC must raise a $20,000 Capital Fund to ensure the historic site and surrounding landscape will be taken care of and well maintained.

We welcome your support through both donations and pledges.
