Supporting Lexington’s cultural arts classes at Artworks

Where will your donations go?

To provide scholarships for student at Artworks, an art and cultural arts center located at the historic Carver School.. The center’s purpose is to educate, inspire artistic creativity and enrich the lives of participants by providing opportunities and resources to people of all ages and abilities. Classes in dance, karate, music and visual arts (such as pottery and print-making) are just some of the courses students can take. It’s an affordable option with high-level instruction for children and adults in our community.

Can’t join us in person on Saturday?  Help us meet our online goal by donating via our YouCaring site.
