POVA's Virtual Art Demos #BigPayback

Join POVA for this year’s #BigPayback where they’re celebrating all things Art Education! #LiveHereGiveHere

During this year’s Big Payback, POVA’s fundraising $5,000 to build their Emerging Art Education Program at POVA! The goal is to elevate the quality and presentation of the artists’ work by providing them access to artistic workshops and training to grow their skills.

The emerging art educational program hopes to teach artists impacted by homelessness foundational art skills like the principles of art and design, as well as provide opportunities for them to experiment and learn new mediums.

Donations made during this year’s Big Payback will help them expand art educational resources by:

1.) Paying local teaching artists to teach workshops at the studio
2.) Providing scholarships for the artists to participate in local artistic workshops around town
3.) Helping their Program Coordinator (aka art educator on staff) develop training and workshops to teach the fundamentals of art and various mediums

Learn more about how your donations during the Big Payback will make an impact here:

Throughout the Big Payback, they’ll be hosting online art demos led by various members of their team including a POVA artist, volunteer, and staff member. These opportunities will allow community members to learn more about their mission, as well as learn a new skill from the comfort and safety of their own home.
